Sweet Is the Memory of Thy Grace

Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840
1. Sweet is the mem'ry of thy grace
My God, my heav'nly King;
Let age to age thy righteousness
In sounds of glory sing.
2. God reigns on high, but not confines
His goodness to the skies;
Through the whole earth his bounty shines,
And ev'ry want supplies.
3. With longing eyes thy creatures wait
On thee for daily food,
Thy lib'ral hand provides their meat,
And fills their mouth with good.
4. How kind are thy compassions, Lord,
How slow thine anger moves!
But soon he sends his pard'ning word
To cheer the souls he loves.
5. Creatures with all their endless race,
Thy pow'r and praise proclaim,
But saints that taste thy richer grace,
Delight to bless thy name.
