1. I need Thee every hour,
      Most gracious Lord;
    No tender voice like Thine
      Can peace afford.
    • I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
        Every hour I need Thee;
      Oh, bless me now, my Savior!
          I come to Thee.
  2. I need Thee every hour,
      Stay Thou near by;
    Temptations lose their power
      When Thou art nigh.
  3. I need Thee every hour,
      In joy or pain;
    Come quickly and abide,
      Or life is vain.
  4. I need Thee every hour,
      Teach me Thy will;
    And Thy rich promises
      In me fulfill.
  5. I need Thee every hour,
      Most Holy One;
    Oh, make me Thine indeed,
      Thou blessed Son.
