3776 4. 6 4, with refrain
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.
2  I need Thee every hour,
    Stay Thou near by;
Temptations lose their power
    When Thou art nigh.
3  I need Thee every hour,
    In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,
    Or life is vain.
4  I need Thee every hour:
    Teach me Thy will,
And Thy rich promises
    In me fulfil.
5  I need Thee every hour,
    Most Holy One;
O, make me Thine indeed,
    Thou blessèd Son.
Annie Sherwood Hawks, 1835-1918
