SWEET IS THE MEMORY OF THY GRACE

1.SWEET Is  the memory of Thy grace,

My God, my heavenly King : 

Let age to age Thy righteousness 

In sounds of glory sing.


2.God reigns on high, but not confines

His bounty to the skies: 

Through the whole earth His goodness shines,

And every want supplies.


3.With  longing  eyes  the  creatures

wait On Thee for dally food; 

Thy  liberal hand  provides  them meat, 

And fills their mouths with good.


4.How  kind  are  Thy  compassions, Lord, 

How slow Thine anger moves; 

But soon He sends His pardoning word, 

To cheer the souls He loves.


5.Creatures,  with  all  their endless race, 

Thy power and praise proclaim; 

But we, who taste Thy richer grace, 

Delight to bless Thy name.
