I Need Thee Every Hour

Good morning.

Last night I put the finishing touches on the latest in my collaged hymn series, and I thought I'd share it with you today.... Here it is:

"I Need Thee Every Hour"
by Beth Stone
Digital, watercolor, acrylic ink, and ephemera collage on Arches 140lb CP 100% Cotton Rag

This is Josh's favorite hymn, and the original is a late birthday gift for him.
Have you heard this hymn before? I'll share the lyrics with you in case you haven't:

"I Need Thee Every Hour"
Lyrics by Annie S. Hawks
Music by Robert Lowry

I need thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
no tender voice like thine can peace afford.
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 nearby;
temptations lose their power when thou art nigh.

I need thee every hour, in joy or pain;
come quickly and abide, or life is vain.

I need thee every hour; teach me thy will;
and thy rich promises in me fulfill.

I need thee every hour, most Holy One;
O make me thine indeed, thou blessed Son.

Here's a nice version of the song by Fernando Ortega:

If you're interested in purchasing prints or greeting cards featuring this collage, I now have them available in my Etsy shop. I will also be making necklaces featuring this piece in the near future which will also be available - I'll let you know when they're ready.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a lovely week.
