1.Wind chimes through my windows ringing Set my joyful soul a-singing,
Softly now, new life revealing, Sounds a Father's love appealing.
Listen! How the echo lingers, Played with air through God's own fingers,
Peace that falls, like fragrance falling, Cheery carols calling, calling, (calling).
Hearken, oh my soul, to hear it, Music of the heav'nly Spirit.
He who fashioned music blesses, Dances in the wind, caresses,
Serenading, lullabying, Soul and spirit satisfying (fy-ing).
3.Treasure now the childish pleasures Of the bright melodic measures;
Hear the zephyr minstrelations Rise in airy celebrations,
Notes like butterflies cavorting, Birds of unseen wing a-sporting,
Trilling, thrilling, dipping, soaring, Silver coins of joy outpouring, (pouring).

I've never published this song, except as a [YouTube video]. I've never advertised it, but I see that more than one person has copied it onto their business websites to help them $ell more wind chime$, and that's okay. Hmm, has God ever charged you for a bird song, wind song, cricket song, or water song?
Since this is a song-writing blog, after you have read through it once to just find the feel and the fun in it, go through it again as a serious song-writer— focusing your attention on its internal rhyme, alliteration, colorful-but-less-common words (like blithesome, serenading, zephyr, cavorting and sporting), and its word-pictures (i.e."silver coins of joy"). Oh, and sorry about the pun.
