I need Thee every hour

As I reach 21 years of ME, another favourite hymn -

I need Thee every hour,
Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford.

I need Thee, O I need Thee!
Every hour I need Thee;
O bless me now, my Saviour!
I come to Thee.

I need Thee every hour;
Stay Thou nearby;
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 fulfil.

I need Thee every hour,
Most Holy One;
O make me Thine indeed,
Thou blessed Son!

Annie S. Hawks, 1835-1918

“Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy” (Psalm 86:1).
