Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

E120. I Need Thee Every Hour

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!
Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Saviour,
I come to Thee.

2 I need Thee ev'ry hour,
Stay Thou near by;
Temptations lose their pow'r
When Thou art nigh. [Chorus]

3 I need Thee ev'ry hour,
In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,
Or life is vain. [Chorus]

4 I need Thee ev'ry hour;
Teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises
In me fulfil. [Chorus]

5 I need Thee ev'ry hour,
Most Holy One;
Oh, make me Thine indeed,
Thou blessed Son. [Chorus]
