Why was this hymn included in AmblesideOnline's hymn rotation?

Since AO has a CM and classics focus, we thought it would be nice to round out our collection of hymns to include a few from various Protestant churches outside our own Advisory experience. But when we did a search, it turned out that we didn't have to look any further than the Anglican church, which is handy, since that's the church Charlotte Mason was a member of. These hymns aren't just Anglican -- these are hymns that cross over both Anglican and Protestant traditions. These additions help round out what we already had.

We ended up using two sources:

Wikipedia has a page of the traditional Four Great hymns, updated to Ten. "The 'Great Four' are four hymns widely popular in Anglican and other Protestant churches during the 19th century." The four are:
     All Praise to Thee, my God, this Night
     Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
     Lo! He Comes with Clouds Descending
     Rock of Ages

AnglicansOnline.org polled their readers and asked them to name their very favorite hymn; the results of that poll are here. The site has a snippet of information about each hymn. There were 20 listed; here are the top four winners:
     I Bind Myself/St Patrick's Breastplate
     Amazing Grace
     Be Thou My Vision
     Come Down, O Love Divine

Some of the hymns they listed were already a part of AO's line-up, so they did not need to be added. The following hymns were the new additions that were worked into AO's existing Hymn rotation.

          I Bind Myself/St. Patrick's Breastplate
          Come down, O Love Divine
          All My Hope on God is Founded
          For All the Saints Who From Their Labours Rest
          O Thou Who Camest From Above
          Lift High the Cross
          My Song is Love Unknown
          The King of Love My Shepherd Is
          Glory to Thee, My God, This Night/Tallis's Canon
          Awake My Soul and With the Sun
          Sun of My Soul, Thou Saviour Dear
          Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending
