I Need Thee Every Hour (Hymn)

I Need Thee Every Hour
Annie Hawks (1872)

I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.

Refrain
I need Thee, O I need Thee; Every hour I need Thee;
O bless me now, my Savior, I come to Thee.

I need Thee every hour, stay Thou nearby;
Temptations lose their power when Thou art nigh.

Refrain

I need Thee every hour, in joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide, or life is in vain.

Refrain

I need Thee every hour; teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises in me fulfill.

Refrain

I need Thee every hour, most Holy One;
O make me Thine indeed, Thou blessèd Son.

Refrain

Of course, we need Him every hour.  But do we realize just how much we need Him every hour?  “Come quickly and abide, or life is vain.”  Without Him, our lives really don’t amount too much.  But with Him, our lives have eternal value.  As the refrain says, we need Him every hour so we need to come to Him – over and over, all the time, in every situation we need to be coming to Him.  We really do need Him.
