I Need Thee Every Hour


Voicing: SATB with optional solo
Accompaniment: a cappella
Text: Annie Hawks (1835-1918)

I Need thee every hour, most gracious Lord
No tender voice like thine can peace afford.
I need thee every hour, stay thou nearby;
Temptations lose their pow’r when thou are nigh

I need thee, oh, I need thee
Every hour I need thee
Oh bless me now my Savior,
I come to thee.
I need thee every hour, in joy or in pain.
Come quickly and abide, or life is in vain.
I need thee every hour, most holy one.
Oh make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son.

I need thee, oh, I need thee
Every hour I need thee
Oh bless me now my Savior,
I come to thee.
