Zitate Charles Wesley

„Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us thy humble home“

—  Charles Wesley

"Hymn for Christmas-Day"
Hymns and Sacred Poems (1739)
Kontext: Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us thy humble home;
Rise, the woman's conquering Seed,
Bruise in us the serpent's head....
Adam's likeness, Lord, efface;
Stamp thine image in its place.
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in thy love.

„Hail the heavenly Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!“

—  Charles Wesley

"Hymn for Christmas-Day"
Hymns and Sacred Poems (1739)
Kontext: Hail the heavenly Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.

„Love divine, all loves excelling,
Joy of heaven to earth come down,
Fix in us thy humble dwelling,
All thy faithful mercies crown;
Jesu, thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love thou art,
Visit us with thy salvation,
Enter every trembling heart.“

—  Charles Wesley

Attributed to Wesley in America Over the Water (2004) by Shirley Collins, p. 113, it is earlier attributed to his brother John, in The English Poets: Addison to Blake (1880) by Thomas Humphry Ward, and even earlier to George Whitefield, in The Monthly Review, or, Literary Journal, Vol. 49 (June 1773 - January 1774), p. 430; this has also been reported as a remark made by Rowland Hill, when he arranged an Easter hymn to the tune of "Pretty, Pretty Polly Hopkins, in The Rambler, Vol. 9 (1858), p. 191; as well as to William Booth, who popularized it as an addage in promoting The Salvation Army.

„God buries his workmen, but carries on his work.“

—  Charles Wesley

As quoted in Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature (1889). This appears with two quotes of John Wesley on the monument to both men in Westminster Abbey, and is commonly attributed to John.

„And can it be, that I should gain
An Int'rest in the Saviour’s blood!
Dy'd He for Me? ---- who caus'd his Pain!
For Me? ---- who him to Death pursu'd!
Amazing Love!   how can it be
That Thou, my GOD shouldst die for Me?“

—  Charles Wesley
