Charles Wesley broke many barriers of 1700’s England not only to become "the most gifted and indefatigable poet and hymn writer that England has ever known," but also to give music, heart and soul to the Methodist movement that he and his brother John led.
From a tenuous birth to blazing field preacher, this film explores the facets of the man known as "The Sweet Bard of Methodism." Discover the poet, husband, and hymn writer who penned "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing," and "O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing." Follow Charles as a failed missionary to America,
then back home, depressed and dejected till he experiences a mighty conversion in May 1738 that kindled within him the passion to reach others with such intensity that, through his verse, we feel it today.
