Desperate Need (I John 3:19-24)

How desperately I need Thee, Lord,
To guard me and to feed me,
And nurtured by Thy holy word,
With blessing when I heed Thee.
But I could never feel Thee, Lord,
With flesh since Thou art spirit.
Thy mighty hand I can not see,
I can not taste or hear it.

How desperately I need thee, Lord,
I can not even seek Thee,
I cannot see, but Thou canst see,
To comfort and release me.
Assurance comes from Thee, my Lord,
And through Thy power only,
I know I’m thine for Thou hast claimed,
To mold me to Thy glory.

How desperately I need Thee, Lord,
In weakness I have sought Thee,
My prayer for deliverance,
From vile vice that fought me.
And Thou hast heard my prayer, Lord,
And so I know Thou savest,
And with Thy will my soul sustained,
Relationship Thou gavest.

How desperately I need Thee, Lord,
And Thou in me abidest,
That in Thy power I may live,
Thy Spirit then to ride with.
And Thou hast made Thy home in me,
And with Thy scripture fed me,
Thy Law and Spirit filling me,
And promise yet to wed me!
