I Need Thee Every Hour

Fervently

1. I need thee ev’ry hour,

Most gracious Lord.

No tender voice like thine

Can peace afford.

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev’ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

2. I need thee ev’ry hour;

Stay thou nearby.

Temptations lose their pow’r

When thou art nigh.

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev’ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

3. I need thee ev’ry hour,

In joy or pain.

Come quickly and abide,

Or life is vain.

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev’ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!

4. I need thee ev’ry hour,

Most holy One.

Oh, make me thine indeed,

Thou blessed Son!

[Chorus]

I need thee, oh, I need thee;

Ev’ry hour I need thee!

Oh, bless me now, my Savior;

I come to thee!
