Hymn and Scripture Challenge #20 - I Need Thee Every Hour

Happy Sunday to you all, my friends!

I'm here with my latest Hymn and Scripture Challenge page. The new one starts today but I saved this one to share with you on this beautiful Sunday morning!

It's another very beautiful and meaningful hymn today. Here are the words:


I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
no tender voice like thine can peace afford.
Refrain:
I need thee, O I need thee,
every hour I need thee!
O bless me now, my Savior--
I come to thee!

I need thee every hour; stay thou near by; 
temptations lose their power when thou art nigh[Refrain]
 I need thee every hour; teach me thy will,
and thy rich promises in me fulfill. [Refrain]

I need thee every hour, Most Holy One;
O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son. [Refrain]


I know that I need my Lord every hour of every day! As one who lives with almost constant pain...I could not make it through the day without His strength. I could not enjoy the day without His JOY! The Scripture verse I used is found in Psalm 86: 3-4. It says:

Have mercy on me, O Lord,
for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant,
for to you, O Lord, 
I lift up my soul.


No matter what we struggle with in life...physical pain, emotional pain, loss, trying circumstances...we all need God! He is always there for us, waiting to shower us with blessings!

My page is very simple. I printed out the music sheet but I had to cut it down so it would fit on my 8 1/2" page. Black and pink is one of my favorite colour combinations, so I matted everything in pink and then layered it on a black base. I've had this stamp & punch set for quite some time but I think this is the first time I've used it. Well, I stamped and punched! lol I used some of the extra strips cut off the music sheet for the leaves. I added the pretty pearl butterflies and some extra black bling...and there you have it!

I pray you all have a Sunday full of Joyful Blessings! :o)
