Casting Crowns - East to West Lyrics

– East to West Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
I know you’ve cast my sin 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

[Chorus]
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
Rising up in me again
In the arms of your mercy
I find rest ‘cus You know
Just how far the east
Is from the west
From one scarred hand
To the other

[Verse 3]
I start the day, the war begins
Endless reminding of my sin
And 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

[Chorus]
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
Rising up in me again
In the arms of your mercy
I find rest ‘cus You know
Just how far the East
Is from the West
From one scarred hand
To the other

[Bridge]
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
About the truth your word reveals
And I’m not holding onto you
But you’re holding onto me
You’re holding onto me

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
Rising up in me again
In the arms of your mercy
I find rest ‘cus You know
Just how far the East
Is from the West
From one scarred hand
To the other} [x2]

[Outro]
Just how far,
The east is from the west,
Just how far
From one scarred hand
To the other
You know just how far,
The east is from the west,
Just how far
From one scarred hand
To the other
