I Need Thee Every Hour

                                                                                  I Need Thee Every Hour

                                                                                   I need thee ev'ry hour,
                                                                                   Most gracious Lord.
                                                                                   No tender voice like thine
                                                                                   Can peace afford.
                                                                                   I need thee ev'ry hour;
                                                                                   Stay thou nearby.
                                                                                   Temptations lose their pow'r
                                                                                   When thou art nigh.
                                                                                    I need thee ev'ry hour,
                                                                                    Most holy One.
                                                                                    Oh, make me thine indeed,
                                                                                    Thou blessed Son!
                                                                                    I need thee, oh, I need thee;
                                                                                    Ev'ry hour I need thee!
                                                                                    Oh, bless me now, my Savior;
                                                                                    I come to thee!
                                                                                    I need thee ev'ry hour,
                                                                                    In joy or pain.
                                                                                    Come quickly and abide,
                                                                                    Or life is vain.
                                                                                   -Annie S. Hawks, 1835-1918
                                    "Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." Matthew 28:20b


  1. Amen! This is one of my favorite hymns. I do need Him every hour and am so glad He is with me.♡

  2. One of my favorites too - as it was written by a housewife ... I can so relate. :)

  3. This is a hymn that I need in our life even more right now. It is so precious to know that he is with us every moment of the day.
