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; 
and thy rich promises in me fulfill. 

5. I need thee every hour, most Holy One; 
O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son.
