see the world through my eyes…

Lyrics: (http://artists.letssingit.com/casting-crowns-lyrics-east-to-west-xngr6x5)


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 scar[r]ed hand to the other


I start the day the war begins

Endless reminding of my sin

Time and time again

Your [T]ruth 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 scar[r]ed 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 your holding on to me

Your 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 scar[r]ed hand to the other(x2)


(Just how far, the East is from the West) (x3)


From one scarred hand to the other
