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.

Really need Him now so critically. Going thru a major loss

Brother Ali

The LORD saved me out of Islam years ago. I am still learning how much I need Him daily, yes, even hourly.

15 As for man, his days are like grass;

As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.

16 For the wind passes over it, and it is [b]gone,

And its place remembers it no more.

17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting

On those who fear Him,

And His righteousness to children’s children,

18 To such as keep His covenant,

And to those who remember His commandments to do them.

19 The Lord has established His throne in heaven,

And His kingdom rules over all.

Psalm 103


Susan Grace

I was praying, and suddenly the tune to this song was in my head. I started crying, because I realized how much I actually need him. I ask for His help daily, and receive it by the minute... A little bit of a spiritual moment.


Warminster, PA, United States

This song becomes more relevant every day. Oh, how I need Him.


Uyo, Akwa Ibom, Nigeria

Just in my silent hour with my Lord, this song came into heart and calmly manifest in my lips. At that point I realized that nothing more important than His presence, and nothing satisfied than our Lord Jesus Christ. Am at peace when I sing it.

Jonathan Omijie

The song I love to sing when I seek His presence, His touch and desires His miracles.


Illinois, United States

As I began my holy hour this song came to mind. The choir that my father directed sang it often, but I haven’t heard it recently. Right now I feel the need for the Lord’s presence and help more strongly than usual.

Omoolorun suggested another comforting psalm, hymn that is a favorite of mine too.

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.
