CHARLES WESLEY (1)
English clergyman, poet and hymn writer
(1707 - 1788)

Hail the day that sees Him rise,
  Ravished from our wistful eyes!
    Christ, awhile to mortals given,
      Re-ascends His native heaven.
        There the glorious triumph waits,
          Lift your heads, eternal gates!
            Wide unfold the radiant scene,
              Take the King of glory in!
      - [Ascension Day]

One family--we dwell in Him,
  One church above, beneath,
    Though now divided by the stream,
      The narrow stream of death.
      - [Churches]

Other refuge have I none;
  Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
    Leave, ah, leave me not alone,
      Still support and comfort me!
        All my trust on Thee is stayed,
          All my help from Thee I bring;
            Cover my defenseless head
              With the shadow of Thy wing.
      - [Trust]

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
  Sons of men and angels say.
    Raise your joys and triumphs high;
      Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
      - Christ the Lord is Risen To-Day [Easter]

"Hark the herald angels sing,
  Glory to the new-born king."
    Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
      God and sinners reconciled.!
      - Christmas Hymn [Christmas]

Lo! on a narrow neck of land,
  'Twixt two unbounded seas, I stand.
    Secure, insensible.
      - Hymn [Life]

My soul is all an aching void.
      - Hymn [Soul]

A charge to keep I have,
  A God to glorify:
    A never-dying soul to save,
      And fit it for the sky.
      - Hymns (318) [Soul]

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,
  And looks to that alone;
    Laughs at impossibilities,
      And cries, "It shall be done!"
      - Hymns (no. 360) [Faith : Success]

When summoned hence to thine eternal sleep,
  Oh, may'st thou smile while all around thee weep.
      - On an Infant [Tears]

See the Gospel Church secure,
  And founded on a Rock!
    All her promises are sure;
      Her bulwarks who can shock?
        Count her every precious shrine;
          Tell, to after-ages tell,
            Fortified by power divine,
              The Church can never fail.
      - Scriptural (psalm XLVIII, st. 9)
        [Churches]

Not from his head was woman took,
  As made her husband to o'erlook;
    Not from his feet, as one designed
      The footstool of the stronger kind;
        But fashioned for himself, a bride;
          An equal, taken from his side.
      - Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures
        [Women]
