Plumb, “Need You Now (How Many Times)”


Contemporary Christian artist Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, better known as Plumb, has released Need You Now (How Many Times), a powerful rock ballad that is making its way up the Christian AC charts. I’ve wanted to write about Need You Now (How Many Times) by Plumb for several weeks now, but without a video on YouTube to link to (or even availability on the iTunes Philippines store!), I couldn’t. Now that there’s this video, I can link to it! Yay! Faster Than a Bullet will be released in digital and CD formats on Sept 4 off Curb Records.

Plumb’s Need You Now (How Many Times) is really emotion-packed and ministering. You can hear the desperation in her voice as she sings about her need for God in her situation. I am firmly convinced that Need You Now (How Many Times) will minister to so many in the faith, and this is Plumb’s strongest bet for Christian Top 10 in years. Although she has released some of her best work since joining Curb Records nine years ago, Christian AC hasn’t typically been responsive, but I’m hoping Need You Now (How Many Times) will change all that. Here’s hoping, because this is a great song.


Well, everybody’s got a story to tell
And everybody’s got a wound to be healed
I want to believe there’s beauty here
So, I guess you’re tired of holding on
I can’t let go, I can’t move on
I want to believe there’s meaning here

How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

Standing on a road I didn’t plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I’m trying to hear that still small voice
I’m trying to hear above the noise


Though I walk, though I walk through the shadows
And I, I am so afraid
Please stay, please stay right beside me
With every single step I take

How many times have you heard me cry out?
And how many times have you given me strength?


I need you now
I need you now

    This is such an inspirational song to me because I have so many things going on in my life that I have absolutly no control over.  I have a son who has just married the love of his life from
    Germany (he’s in the U.S. Army) and I’m so happy for them.  I have another son who is to
    to be married on December 1st and I wish him the best.  I need God so much now and
    I think my boys do too so please anyone and everyone who can and will pray for me and
    my boys and their new wives.  Thank you God for Plumb and all of the other recording
    artist who bring inspiration and love to us from our God on a daily basis.

    This is an awesome song because we all go through rough times in life that we didn’t plan. Our faith is tested as we hope these trials in life are fora greater purpose!

    This song is my favorite of all time! I am having the roughest time with the loss of my father a couple weeks ago and my entire life has been rough. This song is so inspiring as well as the background of why it was even wrote to begin with. Thanks for hope!

    Believe it or not but I must tell Plumb, that I am 61 and I just love her newest album “Need You Now” it ministers to me the same way that many of Kathy Trocoli’s music does. Please never think what you go through is for you alone. You never know how many people your message is for when you put Jesus first in all things. Thank you & thanks be to the one who loved us first. Keep up the good work!
