Even Me, a gospel song by Lahle Wolfe

Even Me

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
So why do all these things come to my mind?
He maketh me to lie down in His green pastures
But the grass sure looks so green on the other side

His grace is sweet and ohhhh too good for me
His love is strong and it set me free
Ain’t it Amazin’ Grace after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me

I don’t like valleys or the shadow of death
He said don’t fear no evil, well OK, but I sure fear all the rest
Like what you folks think of me, and am I good enough?
And what will happen to me if someone calls my bluff

His grace is sweet and ohhhh too good for me
His love is strong and it set me free
Ain’t it Amazin’ Grace after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me

Instrumental Bridge

His grace is sweet and ohhhh too good for me
His love is strong and it set me free
Ain’t it Amazin’ Grace after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me

His gift is free and He saved a wretch like me
He said He wants me for all eternity ohhhh
Ain’t it Amazin’ Grace after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me.

 

 


Music and Lyrics Lahle Wolfe Ehrlich
1999

Verse:  EAB EAB   Chorus:  E A B E A B

Notes: Many years ago, when my kids were young I was often stretched thin. On one particularly long day, I retreated to the tub for a rare Calgon moment.  I had been pushed a little too far and was thinking about how bad I felt ‘losing it’ a bit over the small stuff in life.  I just started singing this song and it kinda stuck with me. 

This is a simple song to play — give it a try!

Verse:  EAB EAB   Chorus:  E A B E A B

Verse 1

E                                            A
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
B                                              A                     E
So why do all these things come to my mind?
E                                               A
He maketh me to lie down in His green pastures

But the grass sure looks so green on the other side

Chorus

His grace is sweet and ohhhh to good for me
His love is strong and it set me free
But ain’t it amazing after all the things I’ve done
He loves me, He loves even me
