Casting Crowns – East To West 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, 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
'cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other
One scarred hand to the other
From one scarred hand to the other

    This song means so much to me. The fear of never being able to become accepted in Jesus' eyes, or more so never deserving it, for the simple fact no matter what I do or how hard I try I fail, I sin reguardless of the attempt not too.
    But thank the lord that's why Jesus was born, and that's why Jesus died. For Me! For all of us! Its that easy fall to your knees and ask it doesn't have to be in some church or public place for everyone to see go into your closet in your house and talk to him, just you and him. That's why the scars on his hands are there to allow you in his arms anytime, anywhere.
