38. I Need Thee, Precious Jesus

1 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 stay.

2 I need thee, precious Jesus,
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 trial,
And all my sorrows share.

3 I need thee, precious Jesus,
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,
And point me to the Lamb.
