I need Thee every hour


I need thee every hour,
most gracious Lord;
no tender voice like thine
can peace afford.
Refrain:
I need thee, O I need thee;
every hour I need thee;
O bless me now, my Savior,
I come to thee.


I need thee every hour,
stay thou nearby;
temptations lose their power
when thou art nigh. Refrain

I need thee every hour,
in joy or pain;
come quickly and abide,
or life is in vain. Refrain

I need thee every hour;
teach me thy will;
and thy rich promises
in me fulfill. Refrain

I need thee every hour,
most Holy One;
O make me thine indeed,
thou blessèd Son. Refrain
