I need thee



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 bless├Ęd Son.



Refrain



Annie S. Hawks, 1872.
