I need Thee every hour

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.
I need Thee every hour,
  Stay Thou near by;
Temptations lose their power
  When Thou art nigh.
I need Thee every hour,
  In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,
  Or life is vain.
I need Thee every hour,
  Teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises
  In me fulfill.
I need Thee every hour,
  Most Holy One;
Oh, make me Thine indeed,
  Thou blessed Son.

This is my banner song.


I started this morning feeling very blue. The feelings lifted and I settled a bit into peace after singing the entire hymn. A simple, sweet fix!

I bless God for using this hymn to bless me this morning. I wàs depressed and as I was meditating on how I can fully obey the Lord, this song came to my mind and as I went through the lyrics of the song, I discovered that, I really need HIM every hour, minute and seconds. We need HIS strength and wisdom to be fulfilled in life. Thank God for this hymn.

Thank you all for the inspiring comments, they have stilled my heart and just speechless. Every one in the world needs some thing more than human ability to give an answer in whatever situation. No one in the world today can deny the fact the we are limited in ability but God gives an ability that out human mind can not comprehend. We really need Him.

In this particular trail time, this is one of the hymn that keeps me going.

When am no where to be found in Christ it kept ringing in my ear.

Oh what a song!


I don't sing hymns much in church, but last night I just couldn't sleep. Until around 4 in the morning the chorus for this song suddenly came to my mind and it just kept playing in my heart. After all these years, I finally realize how beautiful the lyrics to this song is...

My heart was called to sing this song today when my heart was filled with pain and a lonely sadness. There is a great blessing in the singing of this song. Dear ones, I was mysteriously blessed. There was a quality of a different atmosphere that surrounded me and I was transformed. I was cheered. His anointing is on this song. Reading your comments amplified the blessings. Thank God for you all.

Surely every hour we need Him. From hour to hour we do not know what situations will confront us. We may say hallelujah or amen in the meeting, but when we get home, our joy may vanish, and instead of hallelujah and amen there will be silence and a long face. A problem has arisen. Or we may get chilled and catch cold. Whatever the problem, Christ is there taking care of our case. He bears us when we have a long face or are ill. His interceding never ceases. His ability to take care of us is unlimited because He is the almighty God. His priesthood is an interceding ministry in the heavens, in the Holy of Holies, before God for us.
