Lord, I Need You Lyrics

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart
You’re the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I’ll fall on You
Jesus, you’re my hope and stay

  • Melissa Beier says:

    God has used this song so much in my life over the past couple months. There are moments when we feel desperate, when we wonder why, we feel alone, we are so joyful, we feel so blessed…or we ask that God would show us what He wants from us and how to live. And that’s where these words touch my heart so much…”Lord, I need You, oh I need You. Every hour I need You. My one defense, my righteousness, oh God how I need You.” He is ALL that we need. That’s what He wants from us. For us to run to Him, cling to Him and trust Him with everything we’re going through. Whether it’s painful and hard, or joy filled and exciting! We need Him!

  • On November 5, 1993, we lost our beloved 9 +3/4 year old son, David..
    He died in his sleep from a prolonged epileptic seizure. It was a sudden and totally unexpected death. The family was devastated….With The Help of God and His People….We were able to move forward on the journey of acceptance and resolving our grief.

    Over the years, there have been some comforting words, poems Hymns…..Kindnesses extended.

    Few have touched my heart and helped me grieve this profiund loss as “Lord, I Need You.”

    The first time I ever heard this was by Matt Maher at Abbey Fest at Daylesford Abbeyin Paoli, Pa.

    I was moved to tears by Matt’s performance…and the song has not left my head since 09/20th.


    Most times people focus much on God when actual there is a problem, death, etc but this song teaches me that even where there is joy the Lord is supreme.
    it moves me to tears when i focus on my past. if it wasn’t for the Lord, i would not be ever seen around these years from 1990 to date. it is because of Him and His grace…………. He healed me of HIV/AIDS and gave me back he ray of hope and joy in my life. I LOVE/NEED YOU LORD
