Charles Wesley – Happy the Place, But Happier Still

26 Dec
Charles-Wesley

1707-1788. English leader of the Methodist movement along with brother John Wesley.

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea” – Matthew 2:1

HAPPY the place, but happier still
The heart where Christ is born:
The heart which He vouchsafes to fill
Need neither sin nor mourn;
No city could with Bethlehem share
The honour of His birth,
But every soul by faith may bear
The Lord of heaven and earth.

~Charles Wesley~
