1.	I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord; 
	no tender voice like thine can peace afford. 
Refrain:
	I need thee, O I need thee; 
	every hour I need thee; 
	O bless me now, my Savior, I come to thee.

2.	I need thee every hour; stay thou nearby; 
	temptations lose their power when thou art nigh. 
	(Refrain) 

3.	I need thee every hour, in joy or pain; 
	come quickly and abide, or life is vain. 
	(Refrain) 

4.	I need thee every hour; teach me thy will; 
	and thy rich promises in me fulfill. 
	(Refrain) 

5.	I need thee every hour, most Holy One; 
	O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son. 
	(Refrain)
