The new song for worship in November in the 11:15 service at Central Presbyterian Church is “Lord, I Need You.” The refrain in this song is a modern adaptation of the refrain from the classic hymn “I Need Thee Every Hour.” As pastors Eric Stiller and Daryl Madi continue preaching through the book of Philippians this month, this song will help us respond to the word of God with a prayer that we will find Jesus to be our true defense and righteousness (Philippians 3:8-10) and our sure hope and strength who supplies our every need (Philippians 4:11-19).
Lord, I Need You (Audio)
Text and tune: Daniel Carson, Matt Maher, Christy Nockels, Jesse Reeves, and Kristian Stanfill

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, O, I need you.
Every hour I need you.
My one defense, my righteousness,
O 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.
So 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.
