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.

Nice song


Birmingham, Alabama, United States

The devil is running rampant, seeking whom he may devour. I need thee, Lord. As I said, “I need thee” this morning, after sighing heavily from much turmoil on several fronts in my life that are pressing on my mind, I remembered the hymn which so speaks to me during worship. The words are comforting and reassuring to know I can do nothing alone and that I am not alone, but “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ” I need thee, Lord.

As I awake this morning this is my realization. Lord, I need you every hour. Oh teach me how to abide in you. I confess I need you every hour but I do not turn to you that often. Without your life, life is vain. By your life, you can make me a full grown son that knows thy will.

This song came back to me when studying the cycle pattern in the book of Judges. All people need God, all the time (every hour)....

This is a beautiful hymn full of so much meaning for God's creatures big or small. Right now NYC has a influx of MIGRANT FAMILIES we to teach them prayer this hymn could be the start of something big in their lives when are settled in their Abode "I Need Thee Every Hour." Let us pray.

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.
