I need my Savior now

Representative Text

1 The darkness around seems more thick than of yore,
The battle is sterner, the contest is sore,
And ne’er has the foe been more active before,
If ever I needed my Saviour, ‘tis now.

2 I often have known what it was in the past,
My burdens and sorrows upon Him to cast,
His arm so almighty must still hold me fast,
If ever I needed my Saviour, ‘tis now.

3 So many I love have been laid to their rest,
And often with sorrow my heart is opprest,
I fly to the shelter of His loving breast,
If ever I needed my Saviour, ‘tis now.

4 The coldness around is like frost and like snow,
But He can at once set my heart all aglow,
Tis only His love that can warm me I know,
If ever I needed my Saviour, ‘tis now.

5 And oh what a wonder He’s needing me too,
I ne’er for a moment without Him can do,
And daily I find it increasingly true,
If ever I needed my Saviour, ‘tis now.
