John Wesley, the founder of the United Methodist Church, had a brother, Charles, who was the writer of many hymns. "Christ, Whose Glory Fills the Skies" appears in The United Methodist Hymnal, 1989 edition.
"Christ, whose glory fills the skies,
Christ, the true, the only light,
Sun of righteousness, arise,
triumph o'er the shades of night;
Dayspring from on high, be near;
Daystar, in my heart appear."
- Charles Wesley, 1740
