God Meets Our Needs

I need Thee every hour—
This humble prayer
Invokes the saving power
Of Father-care.

I need Thee, comes the cry,
And Love divine
Will always satisfy
Your need and mine.

What if the need be peace!
His presence brings
The grace that gives release
From bickerings.

What if the need be friends!
He will supply
Companionship that lends
True loyalty.

What if the need be wings!
He will restore
A confidence that brings
The power to soar.

We need Thee! Let us pray
The while we know
That all we need to-day,
God will bestow.
