As he shared one of President Spencer W. Kimball's favorite hymns, "I Need Thee Every Hour," President Thomas S. Monson emphasized: "Let’s remember that [favorite hymn] particularly. That choice demonstrates his humility."

As explained in Our Latter-day Hymns:

 "Though not of Latter-day Saint origin, this hymn strikes a meaningful chord among Latter-day Saints in its humble pleading for the constant presence of the Savior. In this hymn, we petition Him repeatedly to be with us, not just in times of trial, not just on special spiritual occasions, but every hour."
