443. I Need Thee Every Hour

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 near by;
temptations lose their power when thou art nigh. (Refrain)

3 I need thee every hour; teach me thy will,
and thy rich promises in me fulfill. (Refrain)

4 I need thee every hour, Most Holy One;
O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son. (Refrain)
