Did you know…..?

Did you know?……that on this Pentecost Sunday in 1738, an ill and morose Charles Wesley lay in a bed, praying to Jesus to keep his promise to send a comforter. He heard a voice saying “…arise, and believe, and thou shalt be healed of all thine infirmities….” He believed forever after that that was the day he received the Holy Spirit. It is said that he wrote this hymn to honor that day:


“Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing

My great Redeemer’s praise;

The glories of my God and king

The glories of my God and king

The triumphs of his grace.”
