Than this word dreams of.

To render the deeds of mercy. --

Stoddard, The Children's Prayer

As down in the sunless retreats of the ocean
Sweet flowers are springing no mortal can see,
So deep in my soul the still prayer of devotion,
Unheard by the world, rises silent to Thee.
As still to the star of its worship, though clouded,
The needle points faithfully o'er the dim sea,
So dark when I roam in this wintry world shrouded,
The hope of my spirit turns trembling to Thee. -- Thomas Moore

But still remember what the Lord hath done. -- William Shakespeare

All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all. --
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
