I need thee

I need thee every hour,
oh I need thee every hour,
I cannot live but for thee,
thy light and love,
my guide and stay,
what but thine power,
can foil the tempters mast'ry?

All around temptation stands,
I'm surronded by sins of thought and deed,
acts of hate and greed,
lust and loathing,
pain and pleasure,
Oh Lord save me from my sin!

Oh thy grace!
what can repay thy love?
what can e'er match thine sacrafice?
what gift have I to offer,
but a soul of quite greatfulness,
resigned to thine will and thine alone,
Oh God grant me your will!
