The Story of Charles F Weigle & His Songs

No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus

Charles F Weigle

Hymn History:   No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus    

Charles Weigle was an Itinerant evangelist.  One day after preaching at a gospel crusade, he came home to find a note from his wife. She did not care for the life she led because of being an evangelist’s wife and she was leaving him.

The next few years were a time of despair

for Weigle. He even wondered if anyone

really cared for him. After a time, his faith

was again restored and he became active

for the Lord again. During this time he

wanted to put to paper a song that would

share the feelings he had experienced

while during his despondent days. From his heart came the words and the tune for the hymn, “No One Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
