I Need Thee Every Hour

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Fervently

1. I need thee every hour,

Most gracious Lord.

No tender voice like thine

Can peace afford.

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Every hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

2. I need thee every hour;

Stay thou nearby.

Temptations lose their pow’r

When thou art nigh.

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Every hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

3. I need thee every hour,

In joy or pain.

Come quickly and abide,

Or life is vain.

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Every hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

4. I need thee every hour,

Most holy One.

Oh, make me thine indeed,

Thou blessed Son!

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Every hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!
