Casting Crowns- East To West

I am loving this "new" song from Casting Crowns....it is a great one to download on itunes. Perfectionist like me have a hard time really accepting God's complete forgiveness sometimes and this song is a great reminder of God's promises to us. God forgives and forgets only because of the blood of Jesus. If you think about it you have not really forgiven someone unless you have forgotten what they have done. Enjoy these beautiful lyrics!

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 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


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


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
