The Other Wesley Boy

People nowadays only remember John and Charles, but Methodist scholars are trying to rehabilitate the hymnody of their brother Tobias.

Tobias burnt most of his work after John, Charles,  George and Ringo poured scorn on his efforts. Today we just have one of his hymns:

Oh Jesus,  I love you
Oh Jesus, it's true.
Oh Jesus, I love you.

It's now thought that Tobias was actually 300 years ahead of his time.
