It is evident that the Christian hymns embedded in the books of the New Testament were not constructed after a classical model of this type. The influence of Old Testament poetry was too strong, the associations of paganism repellant and, moreover, the Greek poetry, familiar to the average man of that day, quite different. The more popular of Barbauld’s children’s works, Hymns in Prose for Children, went through 30 editions by and was translated into five languages. Designed, as Barbauld says in the preface, to impress the “idea of God” on the infant mind, each hymn guides the child into recognizing experience as an expression of the divine order.

This is the sole edition of this compilation of devotional verse, intended for children already familiar with Mrs. Barbauld’s extremely popular Hymns in Prose for Children. The volume includes hymns, prayers, songs, and other verse as well as a prose section devoted to the Collects of the Church of England. So that this book is, in effect, a little body of experimental and practical divinity. 5.
