I NEED THEE PRECIOUS SAVIOUR
I need Thee precious Saviour, 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 foot steps, To be my strength and stay.
I need Thee, precious Saviour, For I am full of sin;
My soul is dark and guilty, My heart is dead within.
I need the cleansing fountain Where I can always flee,
The blood of Christ most precious, The sinner’s perfect plea.
I need Thee, precious Saviour, I need a friend like Thee,
A friend to soothe and pity, A friend to care for me.
I need the heart of Jesus To feel each anxious care,
To tell my every trouble, And all my sorrows share.
I need Thee, precious Saviour, I need Thee, day by day,
To fill me with Thy fullness, To lead me on my way;
I need Thy Holy Spirit, To teach me what I am,
To show me more of Jesus, To point me to the Lamb.
