Matt Maher feat. Audrey Assad – Lord I Need You (Acoustic)

 

“When the church gets together every week and we sing songs, even the new songs that we write and sing come from the legacy of these old songs,’Lord I Need You,’ is inspired by the hymn, ‘Lord Every Hour I Need Thee.’ There is a type of love that you never mature out of, and that is ‘need’ love. You have to admit that you need God, and that is kind of uncomfortable for us. But I have found so much reassurance, and so much hope, knowing that I need Him. And every hour that I need Him, He is able to meet my needs. He will never leave me, or forsake me. And I think that is something worth saying ‘Amen'” – Matt Maher

Lord I Need You
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, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh 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

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

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

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

You’re my one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

    I have a great appreciation for this “mashup” of old hymns and new lyric and melody. . true to the form of both types of music. As a new believer/Christ follower decades ago not. Lord I need you (every hour)…this was a very wonderful and influential song. Here with Matt Maher…fresh, a revival if you will. There is a movement across the ccm , , and I listen to a lot,,,but this revival is needed. There were back in my youth a gap in music styles, I was a rocker, well in my head I was. But classically trained as a Cellist had little of that in Orchestral settings. I hope greatly as a Bible teacher,vocalist,some time worship leader and preacher that this wonderful movement of God in musical worship will grow and draw the warring sides back into the house of God to worship fully.
