Charles Wesley was possibly the most prolific hymn writer that ever lived. It is estimated that he wrote more than 6500 hymns. He was born In Epworth, Lincolnshire (UK) . Along side his brother, John, Charles was used mightily by God during the 18th century ‘Great Evangelical Awaking’.
My God, I am Thine,
What a comfort Divine,
What a blessing to know that my Jesus is mine!
In the heavenly Lamb
Thrice happy I am:
My heart it doth dance at the sound of Thy name.
True pleasures abound
In the Rapturous sound,
And whoever hath found it hath paradise found.
My Jesus to know
And feel His blood flow,
‘Tis life everlasting, ’tis heaven below
My cup it runs o’er,
I have comfort and power,
I have pardon – what can a poor sinner have more?
He can have a new heart,
So as never to start
From Thy paths: he may be in the world as Thou art.
I have faith in Thy blood,
It hath brought me to God,
And I in Thine image shall soon be renewed,
I shall be throughly clean,
And all holy within;
Thine image can harbour no relics of sin.
He came from above
Our curse to remove;
He hath loved, He hath loved us, because He would love.
Love moved Him to die,
And on this we rely:
He hath loved, He hath loved us, we cannot tell why!
We all shall commend
The love of our Friend,
For ever beginning what never shall end.
When time is no more,
We still shall adore
That ocean of love without bottom or shore.
Yet onward I haste
To the heavenly feast;
That, that is the fulness: but this is the taste.
And this I shall prove
Till with joy I remove
To the heaven of heavens of Jesus’s love.
