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 fulfill. [Chorus]

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