320. I need thee every hour

1 I need thee ev'ry hour,
most gracious Lord;
no tender voice like thine
can peace afford.

Refrain:
I need thee, O I need thee!
ev'ry hour I need thee;
O bless me now, my Saviour!
I come to thee.

2 I need thee ev'ry hour;
stay thou near by;
temptations lose their pow'r
when thou art nigh. [Refrain]

3 I need thee ev'ry hour,
in joy or pain;
come quickly and abide,
or life is vain. [Refrain]

4 I need thee ev'ry hour;
teach me thy will;
and thy rich promises
in me fulfill. [Refrain]

5 I need thee ev'ry hour,
most Holy One;
O make me thine indeed,
thou bless├ęd Son! [Refrain]
