Every hour I need Thy blessing,
Every moment need Thy care,
Lord, to Thee I come confessing,
All the sins that me ensnare.
Bless the thoughts that come each moment,
Make them true and pure and fair,
Like to Thine our great atonement,
Beautiful beyond compare.

Every hour I need Thy blessing,
Daily need Thy wondrous love,
Love so tender, so protecting,
Coming from Thy throne above.
For Thy loving care and blessing,
Make me thankful day by day,
By my walk and daily living,
Praising Christ the Living Way.

Every hour I need Thy blessing,
Every moment need Thy care,
Until Thou my soul possessing,
Shall reflect Thine image there.
Then to Christ the King of Glory,
He who bought me with great price,
I shall sing the old, old story,
Christ my Lord, my sacrifice.
