He composed famous hymns such as “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling.”

He married Sarah Gwynne in 1749 (1726–1822), and the couple had several children, only a few of whom survived to adulthood, and two of whom were musical prodigies.

God is gone up on high with a triumphant noise.

Charles Wesley

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees, And looks to God alone; Laughs at impossibilities, And cries it shall be done.
