John and Charles Wesley

John and Charles Wesley (tune: Bunessan)

John and Charles Wesley,
brothers together,
searching for service
to please their God.
Straining and striving,
preaching and teaching,
method and order,
all for the good.

John and Charles Wesley,
brothers together,
wanting much more than
doing what’s right.
Seeking assurance,
God’s affirmation;
needing advice on
finding the light.

John and Charles Wesley,
brothers together,
caught by the Spirit
out of thin air.
Hearts strangely warmed with
personal salvation;
souls set on fire –
answers to prayer.

John and Charles Wesley
brothers together,
knowing God loves them
without one plea.
Renewal coming,
changing church history;
telling their story
of hearts set free.
