East To West - Casting Crowns

EAST TO WEST
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 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 


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 
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 
AND I'M NOT HOLDING ONTO YOU 
BUT YOU'RE HOLDING ONTO ME 
YOU'RE HOLDING ONTO ME 

JESUS YOU KNOW JUST 
HOW FAR THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST 
I DON'T HAVE TO SEE THE MAN 
I'VE BEEN RISING UP IN ME AGAIN 
IN THE ARMS OF YOUR MERCY I FIND REST 
YOU KNOW JUST 
HOW FAR THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST 
FROM ONE SCARRED HAND TO THE OTHER 

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
