John Wesley's first 'Sacred Harmony' hymnal was published in 1780, a second edition following in 1791. 'Sacred Harmony' was the largest collection of Methodist hymn tunes issued during John Wesley's lifetime. It was published shorty after another milestone Methodist hymn book, in 1780, 'A Collection of Hymns, for the Use of the People called Methodists'.

This revised and corrected edition with tunes was published by John Wesley's composer nephew, Charles Wesley (jnr), in 1822.
