When I Need You

When I need a place to hide,Source
You are my Shelter;
When I need a place to rest,
You are my Strength;
When I need a place for love,
You’re my Security.
When I need You,
You’re all things to me.

Lord, I need You always.
I need You always.
There’s never a day
When I can’t say
I need You always.

When I need a hand to hold,
You are my Comfort;
When I need a light to see,
You are my Guide;
When I need a word of hope,
You’re my Counselor.
When I need You,
You’re all things to me.

Lord, I need You always.
I need You always.
There’s never a day
When I can’t say
I need You always.

You’re my life.
You’re my breath.
You’re the reason I exist.

Lord, I need You always.
I need You always.
There’s never a day
When I can’t say
I need You always.

These lyrics were inspired by a poem written by Rebecca Barlow Jordan.  See the image for that poem.  I’ve sung these lyrics at home, but that tune has yet to be set to music or heard by others.

The drawing was inspired by the cover of a concert program during Sandi Patty’s Another Time, Another Place tour.
