1. I need Jesus, my need I now confess;
    No friend like Him in times of deep distress;
    I need Jesus, the need I gladly own;
    Though some may bear their load alone,
      Yet I need Jesus.
    • I need Jesus, I need Jesus,
        I need Jesus every day;
      Need Him in the sunshine hour,
      Need Him when the storm-clouds low’r;
      Every day along my way,
          Yes, I need Jesus.
  2. I need Jesus, I need a friend like Him,
    A friend to guide when paths of life are dim;
    I need Jesus, when foes my soul assail;
    Alone I know I can but fail,
      So I need Jesus.
  3. I need Jesus, I need Him to the end;
    No one like Him, He is the sinner’s friend;
    I need Jesus, no other friend will do;
    So constant, kind, so strong and true,
      Yes, I need Jesus.
