I Need Thee Every Hour

Lyrics

  1. 1. I need thee ev’ry hour,
    Most gracious Lord.
    No tender voice like thine
    Can peace afford.
  2. I need thee, oh, I need thee;
    Ev’ry hour I need thee!
    Oh, bless me now, my Savior;
    I come to thee!
  3. 2. I need thee ev’ry hour;
    Stay thou nearby.
    Temptations lose their pow’r
    When thou art nigh.
  4. I need thee, oh, I need thee;
    Ev’ry hour I need thee!
    Oh, bless me now, my Savior;
    I come to thee!
  5. 3. I need thee ev’ry hour,
    In joy or pain.
    Come quickly and abide,
    Or life is vain.
  6. I need thee, oh, I need thee;
    Ev’ry hour I need thee!
    Oh, bless me now, my Savior;
    I come to thee!
  7. 4. I need thee ev’ry hour,
    Most holy One.
    Oh, make me thine indeed,
    Thou blessed Son!
  8. I need thee, oh, I need thee;
    Ev’ry hour I need thee!
    Oh, bless me now, my Savior;
    I come to thee!
