East to West Lyrics (Casting Crowns)

Here I am Lord and I'm drowning

In your sea of forgetfulness

The chains of yesterday surround me

I yearn for peace and rest

I don't want to end up where you found me

And it echoes in my mind, Keeps me awake tonight

I know you've cast my sins as far As the East is from the West

And I stand before you now, As though I've never sinned

but today I feel like I'm just one mistake away

From you leaving me this way

Jesus can you show me...

Chorus: Just how far the East is from the West

Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been

Come rising up in me again

In the arms of your mercy I find rest

Cause you know just how far the East is from the West

From one scarred hand to the other

I start the day the war begins, Endless reminding of my sin

Time and time again Your truth is drowned out by the storm I'm in

Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away From you leaving me this way

Jesus can you show me

Just how far the East is from the West

Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been

Come rising up in me again

In the arms of your mercy I find rest

Cause you know just how far the East is from the West

From one scarred hand to the other.

I know you've washed me white - Turned my darkness into light

I need your peace to get me through - To get me through this night

I can't live by what I feel - But by the truth your word reveals

I'm not holding on to you, But your holding on to me

Your holding on to me Jesus,

You know just how far...

(Chorus)
