“East to West” (Casting Crowns)

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

“I’m Still Yours” (Kutless)

Another song from Kutless!

Here’s the lyrics:

“I’m Still Yours”

If You washed away my vanity
If You took away my words
If all my world was swept away
Would You be enough for me?
Would my beating heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives and takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart will sing to You

When my life is not what I expected
The plans I made have failed
When there’s nothing left to steal me away
Will You be enough for me?
Will my broken heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives
And takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart
Will sing to You

Even if You take it all away
You’ll never let me go
Take it all away
But I still know

That I’m Yours
I’m still Yours

Oh, I’m Yours
I’m still Yours
I’m still Yours

Kutless – What Faith Can Do

Guys, if you haven’t listened to this, you should! Highly recommended :D It’s a really cool song with powerful message. Give it a try!

Here’s the full lyrics:

“What Faith Can Do” – Kutless

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don’t have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That’s what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

Rush of Fools

I found this one song from Rush of Fools: Undo.

Have you ever listened to this song?

It’s one of the best! :D

 

Here’s the lyrics:

 

Rush of Fools – Undo

I’ve been here before, now here I am again
Standing at the door, praying You’ll let me back in
To label me a prodigal would be
Only scratching the surface of who I’ve been known to be

[Chorus]
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I’ve become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can’t do this myself
You’re the only one who can undo
What I’ve become

I focused on the score, but I could never win
Trying to ignore, a life of hiding my sin
To label me a hypocrite would be
Only scratching the surface of who I’ve been known to be

[Chorus]
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I’ve become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can’t do this myself
You’re the only one who can undo
What I’ve become

Make every step lead me back to
The sovereign way that You

[Chorus]
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I’ve become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can’t do this myself
You’re the only one who can undo
What I’ve become
