Even That
©1997 Lewis Greer/Gary Dugan

The knife that flashed, then cut me deep
Wasn't made of tempered steel
The two-edged blade was made of words
But the wound was just as real
I fell down like a crippled bird and cried in selfish plea
"Lord, I thought You said You cared!
Why let this come to me?"

"Even that. Even that.
I am Lord of all the universe and Lord of even that.
I can use the worst of passion, I can use the best of pain.
Use them as your teachers or to glorify My name.
I used the cross of Calvary,
I used a beggar's mat.
And this trouble that you cry about -
I can use even that."

My diamond flashed as it met the sun,
The gold I wore was pure.
I'd made the score with a clever deal,
My future was secure
I rose up like a mighty bell and let my voice ring free,
"Lord, I know you really care! All this has come to me!"

"Even that. Even that.
I am Lord of all the universe and Lord of even that.
I used a stone from David's sling
To knock Goliath flat
And this shiny rock you hold so dear -
I can use even that."

"Oh Lord, You are amazing!
Your power now I see...
But I'm so ordinary - too bad you can't use me."

"Even that. Even that.
I am Lord of all the universe and Lord of even that.
I can use the strongest spirit,
I can use the weakest frame.
Use them as your teachers or to glorify My name.
I used a human body as an earthly habitat
And if you give yourself to Me -
I can use even that."

"I used a human body as an earthly habitat
And if you give yourself to Me -
I can use even that."
