    John Wesley himself severely redacted (some say, “potted”) a significant amount of Charles’s poetry in the Collection of Hymns for the Use of the People Called Methodists (), and Methodist churches have continued to edit the hymns, adding and removing verses, and updating language through the two centuries since Charles Wesley began. Charles setting to music the themes of John's revival sermons and writing hymns primarily focused on a Christocentric religious experience. "-1Thomas A.
