Charles Wesley wrote this hymn to celebrate the first anniversary of his conversion on Whit Sunday 1738. It was inspired by a Moravian friend Peter Bohler, who had remarked to him, "If I had a thousand tongues I would praise Christ with them all." The words set the poet's heart aglow and to celebrate the anniversary he wrote the hymn.
