John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5455
AUTHOR:Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
QUOTATION: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.
ATTRIBUTION:The Heart’s Prayer.
