484 ~ I Need Thee, Precious Jesus


I need Thee, precious Jesus, For I am very poor; A stranger and a pilgrim, I have no earthly store. I need the love of Jesus To cheer me on my way, To guide my doubting footsteps, To be my strength and stay.


I need the heart of Jesus To feel each anxious care, To tell my every trial, And all my sorrows share. I need the Holy Spirit To teach me what I am, To show me more of Jesus, To point me to the Lamb.


I need Thee, precious Jesus, I hope to see Thee soon, Encircled with the rainbow, And seated on Thy throne. There, with Thy blood-bought children, My joy shall ever be To sing Thy ceaseless praises, To gaze, my Lord, on Thee!
