“I Need Thee Every Hour” is a hymn that reflected the lives of people in the 19th century. This hymn also showed the testimony of the narrator’s devotion to God. She stated that this hymn came from a place of love and joy. The lyrics of the song reminds us why we need God in our life.

But, why do we need Him?

It is simply because God is our salvation. He is a powerful living God that saves us from our sins. He made us His children, so it is our obligation to follow His will. We may sometimes commit mistakes, but God still accepts and loves us. His love is made for all of us, despite our flaws.

Living your life to the fullest is good, but living your life with God is wonderful.  If we live a life where God is in the center, then we will never be alone. Hardships and disappointments may come into our lives, but giving up will not be the answer to our problems. Instead, let us surrender everything to Him and we’ll feel better. If we know that we have God by our side, you don’t have to worry anymore.
