I need Thee every hour

 

VERSE 1

I need Thee every hour,

Most gracious Lord;

No tender voice like Thine

Can peace afford.

 

 I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;

 Every hour I need Thee;

 Oh, bless me now, my Savior!

 I come to Thee.

I need Thee every hour,

Stay Thou near by;

Temptations lose their power

When Thou art nigh.

I need Thee every hour,

In joy or pain;

Come quickly and abide,

Or life is vain.

I need Thee every hour,

Teach me Thy will;

And Thy rich promises

In me fulfill.

VERSE 5

I need Thee every hour,

Most Holy One;

Oh, make me Thine indeed,

Thou blessed Son.
