Help Us to Help Each Other is a collection of hymns by Charles Wesley that reminds people of faith that no one is left behind either at the Lord's Table or in daily living. These hymns summon Christians to use their resources justly by sharing and identifying with the poor. These hymns emphasize that the poor are Christ's best friends and when we serve them, we serve Christ. Charles Wesley affirms that such service is not optional, rather the Christian's duty. The global musical settings of this collection link the historical missional outreach of the Wesley brothers to the twenty-first century mission of the church, and awaken the consciousness of the church to a new and vital ministry with and among the poor.
The tunes are in a variety of styles created for this collection by composers from Africa, Europe, North and South America, and the Caribbean. In addition to these musical settings for contemporary worship and congregational singing, the texts appear on facing pages often with biblical texts selected by Wesley. This greatly enhances the use of the book for study, reflection, teaching, and worship.
