1 Dear Lord, I need Thee all the time,
The road is rough and steep;
And only as I trust to Thee,
The way to heaven I keep;
My sins a heavy burden are;
No peace, no rest I know;
Dear Lord, until Thy blessing comes,
How can I let Thee go?

Refrain:
I cannot let Thee go,
I dare not let Thee go;
Dear Lord, until Thy blessing comes,
I will not let Thee go.

2 Temptations meet me everywhere,
To lure my heart from Thee;
I cannot fight them, Lord, alone;
Wilt Thou my helper be?
This heart of mine, so stained with sin,
O wash it white, like snow;
Dear Lord, unto Thy blessing comes,
How dare I let Thee go? [Refrain]

3 Dear Lord, I cannot walk alone,
My heart is full of fear;
I falter in the way of heaven
Unless I feel Thee near;
But when I touch Thy loving hand,
What rest and peace I know!
Dear Lord, until Thy blessing comes,
I will not let Thee go. [Refrain]
