Tune: NEED, Meter: 64.64 with Refrain
|1. I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
no tender voice like thine can peace afford.
I need thee, O I need thee;
every hour I need thee;
O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee. 2. I need thee every hour; stay thou nearby;
temptations lose their power when thou art nigh.
(Refrain) 3. I need thee every hour, in joy or pain;
come quickly and abide, or life is vain.
4. I need thee every hour; teach me thy will;
5. I need thee every hour, most Holy One;
