Background

Annotations of the Hymnal
Charles L. Hutchins, 1872

Charles Wesley, the son of Samuel Wesley, was born at Epworth, Dec. 18, 1708. He was educated at Westminster School and afterwards at Christ Church, Oxford, where he graduated M. A. In 1735, he took Orders and immediately proceeded with his brother John to Georgia, both being employed as missionaries of the S. P. G. He returned to England in 1736. For many years he engaged with his brother in preaching the Gospel. He died March 29, 1788.

To Charles Wesley has been justly assigned the appellation of the “Bard of Methodism.” His prominence in hymn writing may be judged from the fact that in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 623 of the 770 hymns were written by him; and he published more than thirty poetical works, written either by himself alone, or in conjunction with his brother. The number of his separate hymns is at least five thousand.

Annotations upon Popular Hymns
Charles Seymour Robinson, 1893

Rev. Charles Wesley, son of Samuel and Susannah Wesley, was born at Epworth, in England, Dec. 18, 1708. He was the youngest of at least eighteen children– some biographers say nineteen– of whom, however, nine died in their infancy. The boy was educated first by his own mother, then at Westminster School under his brother Samuel, and ultimately received his degree at Oxford. In 1735 he came to America, acting as the secretary of General Oglethorpe while here, but returned to England a year or two afterward. At that time he was not experimentally a Christian, though he was ordained, and kept himself busily engaged in missionary work among the Indians. His genuine conversion, dating the subsequent year, changed the whole course of his life; then he became a preacher by profession, but he never was settled in a cure of souls except at St. Mary’s in Islington, and that for a short time. He was the rather an itinerant evangelist, serving as the companion or helper of his brother. For many seasons they traveled through England and Ireland, until, in 1749, Charles married Miss Sarah Gwynne, of Garth; then he settled with his family, first in Bristol for some years, then finally in Great Chesterfield Street, London, acting as resident clergyman to some Methodist societies in that city to the end of his days. He died, aged eighty-one years, March 29, 1788, and his body was interred in the graveyard of Old Marylebone Church, near his residence at the time.

These facts, constituting what may be called the data of this remarkable man’s life, are all that need to be stated in these annotations. But many striking incidents of his biography will appear in connection with individual hymns that he wrote during the course of fifty years of literary activity.

Hymns Ancient and Modern: Historical Edition
William H. Frere, 1909

Charles Wesley, the eighteenth child of the Rev. Samuel Wesley, Rector of Epworth, Lincs., was born at Epworth, December 18, 1707, and educated at Westminster School, and Christ Church, Oxford; B.A. 1729. Ordained in 1735, he went with his brother John as a Missionary to Georgia. After his return he was appointed in 1738 to a Curacy in London, which he soon resigned, and began with his brother the itinerant preaching which they continued until their death. The Methodist movement owed very much to the hymns of Charles Wesley, of which he wrote more than six thousand. He died in London, March 29, 1788. Dictionary of National Biography lx. 298.

The Hymns and Hymn Writers of The Church
Charles S. Nutter & Wilbur F. Tillett, 1911

Charles Wesley has been called “the poet of Methodism,” but this designation is too narrow for him. He might more properly be called the poet of Christendom, for the entire Christian world is indebted to him for many of its most valuable hymns. For the first place among English hymn writers he has never had but one competitor. Hymnologists have sometimes instituted a comparison between the hymns of Wesley and those of Watts. Some have given the preference to one, and some to the other. We must remember that these men were not rivals. They were too good, too great, and too unlike to be antagonists. They were both princes— aye, kings— of song, but each in his own realm. Watts’ great theme was divine majesty, and no one approaches him in excellence upon this subject. Wesley’s grandest theme was love— the love of God— and here he had no rival. Charles Wesley was born in Epworth, England, December 18, 1707. He was educated at Westminster School and Oxford University, where he took his degree in 1728. It was while a student at Christ Church College that Wesley and a few associates, by strict attention to duty and exemplary conduct, won for themselves the derisive epithet of “Methodists.” He was ordained a priest in the Church of England in 1735, and that same year he sailed with his brother John as a missionary to Georgia, but soon returned to England. He was not converted, according to his own statement, until Whitsunday, May 21, 1738. (See note under No. 1.) On that day he received a conscious knowledge of sins forgiven, and this event was the real beginning of his mission as the singer of Methodism. He tells his own experience beautifully in the hymn beginning:

And can it be that I should gain
An interest in the Savior’s blood?

Charles Wesley’s hymns may be generally classified as follows: Hymns of Christian experience (“O for a thousand tongues to sing” is an example); invitation hymns (of which “Come, sinners, to the gospel feast” is a good specimen); sanctification hymns (“O for a heart to praise my God” is one of them); funeral hymns (“Rejoice for a brother deceased”); and hymns on the love of God, a subject on which he never became weary. “Wrestling Jacob” represents the last class. But it is preeminently in portraying the various phases of experimental religion— conviction of sin, penitence, saving faith, pardon, assurance, entire sanctification— that Charles Wesley is quite without a peer among hymn writers. His songs have been one of the most potent forces in Methodism since its organization. Nor was he a singer alone, but as an itinerant preacher he was a busy and earnest colaborer with his brother John. After his marriage, in 1749, his itinerant labors were largely restricted to London and Bristol. He died March 29, 1788. “After all,” says Dr. John Julian, the greatest authority in English hymnology, “it was Charles Wesley who was the great hymn writer of the Wesley family, and perhaps, taking quantity and quality into consideration, the great hymn writer of all ages.” Of the six thousand and five hundred hymns by Charles Wesley (all of which were written after his conversion), this collection contains one hundred and twenty-one. (See page 451 for a complete list of the poetical publications of John and Charles Wesley.)

The Methodist Hymn-Book Illustrated
John Telford, 1909

Charles Wesley was bom at Epworth on December 8, 1707, and died in Marylebone, March 29, 1788. He was educated at Westminster School and Christ Church, Oxford. Mr. Garret Wesley offered to adopt him, and he had what his brother John used to call ‘a fair escape’ from being drawn into the world of rank and fashion. He was the first Oxford Methodist, and went to Georgia as secretary to General Oglethorpe. He was ‘converted’ on Whit Sunday, 1738, and John Wesley on the following Wednesday. The first effort of his muse which is preserved was addressed to his sister Martha before her marriage. His conversion unlocked his soul, and for half a century he was the poet of the Methodist revival. John Wesley said truly in the obituary of his brother, which was read at the Conference of 1788, ‘His least praise was his talent for poetry.’ He was a restless evangelist, a glorious preacher, a brave soldier of Christ. It is, however, as the ‘Sweet Singer’ of Methodism that he will always be remembered. Poetry was for him a sixth sense. Every experience of his own inner life, every phase in the history of the Evangelical Revival, every Christian festival, every national event, furnished him with opportunities for song. He wrote about 6,500 hymns, and only death put a period to his music. His most touching and tender note is his swan-song on his death-bed (821).

At Bristol on Saturday, April 25, 1741, Charles Wesley says, ‘Our thanksgiving-notes multiply more and more. One wrote thus: “There was not a word came out of your mouth last night but I could apply it to my own soul, and witness it the doctrine of Christ. I know that Christ is a whole Savior. I know the blood of Christ has washed away all my sins. I am sure the Lord will make me perfect in love before I go hence, and am no more seen.

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My dear Redeemer’s praise!’

Mr. Stead says, ‘The first man whom this hymn helped was Charles Wesley himself. Given the first place in the Methodist hymn-book, it may be said to strike the key-note of the whole of Methodism, that multitudinous chorus, whose voices, like the sound of many waters, encompassed the world.’

Mortimer Collins writes, ‘Wesley’s hymns are as much in earnest as Dibdin’s sea-songs. I suspect Charles Wesley the poet did as much as John Wesley the orator for the permanence of Methodism. The magnetism of personal influence passes away; but the burning life of that wondrous psalmody, sung Sunday after Sunday by congregations full of faith, is imperishable.’

Southey says of the Wesley hymns, ‘Perhaps no poems have ever been so devoutly committed to memory as these, nor quoted so often upon a death-bed. The manner in which they were sung tended to impress them strongly on the mind; the tune was made wholly subservient to the words, not the words to the tune.’

Isaac Taylor wrote, ‘There is no principal element of Christianity, as professed by Protestant churches; there is no moral or ethical sentiment peculiarly characteristic of the gospel; no height or depth of feeling proper to the spiritual life, that does not find itself emphatically and pointedly and clearly conveyed in some stanzas of Charles Wesley’s hymns.’

Earl Selbome regarded Charles Wesley as ‘more subjective and meditative than Watts and his school; there is a didactic turn even in his most objective pieces (as, for example, in his Christmas and Easter hymns); most of his works are supplicatory, and his defects are connected with the same habit of mind. He is apt to repeat the same thoughts, and to lose force by redundancy–he runs sometimes even to a tedious length; his hymns are not always symmetrically constructed, or well balanced and finished off. But he has great truth, depth, and variety of feeling; his diction is manly, and always to the point; never florid, though sometimes passionate and not free from exaggeration; often vivid and picturesque.’

Canon Overton says, ‘Regarded merely as literary compositions, many of Charles Wesley’s hymns attain a very high standard of excellence. They will bear, and indeed require, the closest analysis, in order to discover their hidden beauties.’– The Evangelical Revival, Chap. VI.
