(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
I need Thee ev’ry hour, Most Gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine Can peace afford.
I need Thee, O I need Thee,
Ev’ry hour I need Thee!
O bless me now, my Savior —
I come to Thee!
I need Thee ev’ry hour, Stay Thou near by;
Temptations lose their pow’r When Thou art nigh.
I need Thee ev’ry hour, In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide, Or life is vain.
I need Thee ev’ry hour, Most Holy One:
O Make me Thine indeed, Thou blessed Son!
