Biography
Charles Wesley was a famous English hymn writer, composing over 6,000 hymns in his lifetime. He was the father of Charles Wesley, Jr.. Like most hymnists, his works were frequently altered; he also altered earlier hymns. In the preface to the 1779 Collection of Hymns for the Use of the Peo­ple called Methodists his brother, John, railed against the reprinting of their hymns with no credit given. In addition to hymn writing, Charles and his brother founded the Methodist movement.
