1 Have you taken Jesus for your Friend and Guide?
You need Him ev’ry day, you need Him all the way;
Are you walking ev’ry moment by His side?
You need Jesus all the way.

Refrain:
You need Jesus ev’ry day,
You need Jesus all the way,
He will be a friend to you, ever faithful, kind and true;
You need Jesus all the way.

2 Since He died on Calvary your soul to win,
You need Him ev’ry day, you need Him all the way;
He will keep you safely from the pow’r of sin,
You need Jesus all the way. [Refrain]

3 He will gladly dwell each moment in your soul,
You need Him ev’ry day, you need Him all the way;
He hath pow’r to cleanse you freely make you whole,
You need Jesus all the way. [Refrain]
