Representative Text

1 I need thy presence, Lord,
In every hour,
To be my constant shield
From Satan's power.

I need thee, dearest Savior,
Even now I need thee;
O ever grant this favor,
"Abide with me."

2 I need thy guidance, Lord,
Through every day,
To guide my feet along
Life's devious way. [Chorus]

3 I need thy spirit, Lord,
Yes, all the time,
To show in word and deed
That I am thine. [Chorus]

4 I need thy pardon, Lord;
Bestow it now,
While at the mercy seat
I humbly bow. [Chorus]
