EAST TO WEST

Author Unknown

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 
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 You're holding on to me 
You're holding on to me 

Jesus, You know just how far 
The East is from the West 
I don't have to see the man I've been 
Come rising up in me again 
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest 
(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
