The collection was very influential, as she wrote complex theology in simplified, poetic ways for children. Three of her hymns have never, in fact, gone out of currency: "All things bright and beautiful," "Once in Royal David's city," and "There's a green hill far away," for praise, Christmas, and Lent, respectively. Many composers have set her delightful verse to music including..... and even contemporary composer John Rutter. This versionsung by the children was set to a "German air" in Sarah Eddy's Songs of Happy Life: For Schools, and Bands of Mercy (1897).
