    Casting Crowns – East To West
    From the album – The Altar And The Door

    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

    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 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

    Chorus:

    I know You've washed me white, turned my darkness into light
    I need Your peace to get me through
    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

    Chorus:

    Just how far, east is from the west
    Just how far, one scarred hand to the other
    You know just how far, just how far east is from west
    Just how far, from one scarred hand to the other
