Charles Wesley's Published Verse

Charles Wesley's Published Verse


Scholarly study of Charles Wesley has been hampered by the absence of a reliable and accessible standard source for his published verse. The original works published during his lifetime are quite rare, scattered among research libraries. The 13-volume collection of The Poetical Works of John and Charles Wesley by George Osborn (1868–72) is more broadly spread; however, several features of the Osborn collection restrict its adequacy as a standard source.

The present online collection of the poetical works of John and Charles Wesley is intended to provide the standard for scholarly study and citation that has been needed. It was developed under a set of guidelines to maximize reliability and usefulness.

This subsection of the collection gathers the nearly 4,400 distinct poems and hymns published during Charles Wesley’s life that scholarly consensus traces to his pen.
