Don Moen I Need Thee Every Hour Lyrics

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 Savior
I come to Thee

I need Thee every hour
Stay Thou near by
Temptations lose their pow'r
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
Most Holy One
O make me Thine indeed
Thou blessed Son

I Need Thee Every Hour - The History Behind the Hymn

2nd Corinthians 3:5
i1 need thee every hour written in 1872 now that we are sufficient of ourselves to think
of anything as being from ourselves but our sufficiency is from God second Corinthians 3 5.

In his book the practice of the presence of God.
Brother Lawrence claimed to be as close
to God while working in the kitchen as when praying in the chapel. The lord after all
is always near us. Thus wherever we are is holy ground, that was the experience of Annie hawks, a
housewife and mother of three in Brooklyn Newyork.

As a child Annie Sherwood had doubled in poetry
her first verse being published when she was 14. In 1857 she married Charles Hawks and they
established their home in Brooklyn, joining Dr Robert Lowry's Hanson place baptist church. with
the good doctor's encouragement, she began writing Sunday school songs for children and he
set many of them to music.

I need thee every hour was written on a bright
June morning in 1872. Annie later wrote one day as a young wife and mother of 37 years
of age. I was busy with my regular household tasks suddenly I became so filled with the sense
of nearness to the master that wondering how one could live without him either
in joy or pain. These words I need the every hour were ushered into my mind the
thought at once taking full possession of me.

The next Sunday Annie handed these words to Dr.
Lowry who wrote the tune and chorus while seated at the little organ in the living room of his
Brooklyn parsonage later that year it was sung for the first time at national Baptist sunday.
School association meeting in Cincinnati Ohio and published in a hymn book the following year. WHen
Annie's husband died 16 years later she found that her own hymn was among her greatest comforts.

I did not understand at first why this hymn had touched the great throbbing heart of humanity Annie wrote,
it was not long after when the shadow fell over my way the shadow of a great loss that I understood something of the comforting power in the words which I had permitted to give out to others in my hour of sweet serenity and peace. Sometime after Charles death Annie moved to Bennington
Clermont to live with her daughter and son-in-law. All in all she wrote over 400 hymns during her 83
years though only "I need thee, every hour", is still widely sung.
