    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!
