“East To West”

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

    i love this song and whoever doesnt like it is VERY CRAZY!!

  • WOLFONE42

    I’m sorry Clari326, but who ever doesn’t like this song in NOT crazy, but they just haven’t found God. We should put our hearts into praying for the 105 people who haven’t found God. Lets pray he finds them.

    Hey everyone. First I wanted to say sorry to you and the owner of this channel for spamming. My big sister was murderd 3yrs ago and nothing was ever done about it. She left behind 3 wonderful children that me and my parents raise.I wrote a song about her to help get attention to our cause of a closer investigation into her death (there is a link in the vid description) We dont want money or your information, mainly just prayers but becoming a member to the cause would be great!Thank You so much!

    For anyone who is looking for a biblical explanation of the gospel and salvation, I would highly recommend checking out the scribd website that is listed on my channel. The scripture references given on there make it very clear and easy to understand.

    @jtllowe Amen my friend!

  • 17chrisjenkins

    Thank God so much for His forgiveness and grace. It’s amazing that the God of this universe cares about every single person…and that He cares about me…thank You Jesus for washing away my sins!

  • monickim1

    It’s amazing and again overwhelming how God can love us so much no matter what we do. He will always be there for us.Thank you God.

  • me4meification

    @drenkat87 God choose to let sin into this world so that he gives us the freedom to choose between Him or the devil that’s why, He loves us that much……

  • Airan360

  • CrazyCheeseCurlz

    I cried myself to sleep last night listening to this. I’ve done so much wrong, so much sin. It feels as if God Doesn’t love me anymore. I’ve told so many lies to family, friends and my girlfriend. They all hate me.. I barely have any friends, my girlfriend doesn’t want to have anything to do with me. I cry myself to sleep every night, thinking of the pain I caused her. I hate myself. I wish God could fix me. I wish He will. I’m broken, nothing.

  • mick88227799

    i danced to this one time at my church in i was the mane part a lot of people changed that day and i did to i will never forget that song

  • lizh374

    @CrazyCheeseCurlz This makes me very sad. You are absolutely NOT nothing. I promise that God has plans for you. Sometimes we go through things to have our eyes opened. He sees everything you do. He knows your heart. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Be strong. Have faith. God has already fixed you. You just have to know it.

  • CrazyCheeseCurlz

    @lizh374 I wish He would show it. My only reason for living was for this girl. Now I don’t even know if she loves me anymore. I’ve ruined my life, my relationship. I wish I could change so much.

  • adziepke100

    dang this page is messed up it only shows my likes??? lol

  • mindscent

    @CrazyCheeseCurlz He’s showing it now, Baby. I feel you. God has a call on my life, he wants me to be a minister. But, I’m a severe relationship addict. 3weeks ago He told me to take down all the “high places” in my life, and I did, and I wish I could say it’s been nothing but love and peac, but I’ve been utterly TORTURED with anxiety, depression and panic attacks since then. I feel disgusting, but that is a LIE from the enemy. God is showing up for me in unbelievable ways. Don’t buy the lie.

  • mindscent

    @CrazyCheeseCurlz She’s not where you can get your security, or your reason for living, even if she were the best girl that ever lived. Trust me, I UNDERSTAND. When God told me to leave my boyfriend, I felt like dying, and it has NOT been easy.Relatioship addiction IS an addiction, with withdrawal and classic addict behavior. It’s painful to kick. But He keeps telling me, “I will NEVER leave you, or forsake you.” He shouts it into my soul! check out How He Loves by David Crowder

  • CrazyCheeseCurlz

    @mindscent But my life isn’t worth living without her. I don’t WANT to live without her. I was planning on killing myself after I hurt her. But then the cops got involved… It’ been a full week since I’ve talked to her, it feels like a lifetime. I need to know if she still cares but I’m afraid to ask!

  • redeemedbychrist1
