Personalized Wind Chimes – Amazing Grace

Personalized Wind Chimes. Many people contact us in their search for personalized wind chimes. Our line of Woodstock Amazing Grace chimes is used for all occasions, but they are regarded as an especially meaningful and enduring sympathy gift. We are often asked to create personalized wind chimes that will be used for memorial purposes, a gift alternative to flowers which are beautiful but fleeting. Any phrase can be combined with any symbol to create a meaningful memorial gift…one that truly “sings.”

The background and history of “Amazing Grace” is a moving one, and one that is readily discussed by poets, theologists, scholars and clergy.

In short, “Amazing Grace” is a universal, spiritual Christian hymn written by English poet and clergyman, John Newton. It brings with it the message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of the sins people commit, and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God. It is a song that inspires hope in the wake of tragedy…a “spiritual national anthem.”

Author Gilbert Chase writes that “Amazing Grace” is “without a doubt the most famous of all the folk hymns,” and Jonathan Aitken, a Newton biographer estimates that it is performed about 10 million times annually.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.


Personalized wind chimes – a sympathy gift alternative to flowers

"personalized wind chime""custom wind chime""engraved wind chime"Every day I receive phone calls from friends and family of the bereaved looking for a meaningful and enduring sympathy gift alternative to sympathy flowers. Many choose personalized wind chimes, a gift that is universally appreciated. Recently I spoke with a very kind woman who lost her adult son and wanted to create something very special in his memory, for herself and also to give to his brother and sister. I could tell they were a very close knit and religious family. Without revealing her intentions she asked her two children to provide her with scripture that would be especially meaningful to them, in memory of their brother. She placed their special scripture on these wind sails, and also added symbols that had personal meanings within the family. On the second side, she added her son’s name, and other meaningful symbols. For her chimes she chose Woodstock Amazing Grace chimes, which are often used for memorial purposes. She presented her children with their wind chimes a few weeks ago, on Easter day. I felt honored to have met Dorene and her daughter in person, and to have played a small role in the creation of her chimes — which we all agreed were a beautiful and lasting tribute to her son.
