Lyrics

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord
No tender voice like thine can peace afford
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 every hour, stay thou nearby
Temptations lose their power when thou art nigh
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 every hour, in joy or pain
Come quickly and abide or life is vain

I need thee every hour, most Holy One
Oh make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son
I need thee, oh, I need thee
Every hour I need thee
Oh bless me now, my Savior I come to thee

    I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you. I can’t count how many times your music and arrangements have blessed my life. Our little choir just starting practicing this beautiful arrangement of “I Need Thee Every Hour”, and when I checked to see who arranged this hymn so beautifully, I was not suprised at all to see it was another Sally DeFord piece. I feel compelled today to sit down and personally express to you my feelings of gratitude.

    Thank you.

    God bless you and your family.

    Regards,
