As I got dressed this morning, I sang along to this hymn and I’ve long thought how good it is…why don’t we sing it at church? Hmm. People are scared of thees and thous.

But I love what it says. I do need Jesus every hour.

I so love the Chelsea Moon & Franz Brothers style of music too.

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like thine can peace afford.

I need thee every hour, stay thou nearby;
Temptations lose their pow’r when thou art nigh.

I need thee, oh, I need thee;
Every hour I need thee;
I need thee, oh, I need thee;
Every hour I need thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior,
I come to thee, I need thee.

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, oh, I need thee;
Every hour I need thee;
I need thee, oh, I need thee;
Every hour I need thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior,
I come to thee, I need thee.
