Born: June 28, 1703, Epworth, Lincolnshire, England.

Died: March 2, 1791, London, England.


John and his brother Charles founded the MethodistLink to the English Wikipedia article movement. Charles was the main hymnist in the family, but John translated a number of hymns (mostly German) himself. He began studying the German language on board the ship Simmons, which carried him and Charles to Georgia in 1735. Also on the ship were 26 German Moravian colonists, and Wesley wanted to be able to talk with them and share in their worship services.

  • My Soul Before Thee Prostrate Lies
  • Now I Have Found the Ground Wherein
  • O God, My God, My All Thou Art!
  • O God of God, in Whom Combine
  • O God, of Good the Unfathomed Sea
  • O God Thou Bottomless Abyss
  • O God, What Offering Shall I Give
  • O Jesu, Source of Calm Repose
  • O Thou to Whose All Searching Sight
  • O Thou Who All Things Canst Control
  • O Thou Whom Sinners Love, Whose Care
  • Regardless Now of Things Below
  • Shall I, for Fear of Feeble Man
  • Thee will I love, my strength, my tower
  • Thine, Lord, Is Wisdom, Thine Alone
  • Thou Hidden Love of God
  • Thou, Jesu, Art Our King
  • Thou Lamb of God, Thou Prince of Peace
  • Thou, True and Only God
  • To Thee with Heart and Mouth I Sing
  • What Shall We Offer Our Good Lord
