East To West Lyrics - Casting Crowns

Review The Song (27)



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
sponsored links
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

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 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
(Just how far the east is from the west, just how far)
One scarred hand to the other
(Know just how far the east is from the west, just how far)
From one scarred hand to the other

Simply inspiring and amazing work of God through Casting Crowns. Indeed this is song for the struggling as one user put it. the imagery it produces is clearly of the cross, the new covenant that was written and confirmed unto us on that hill, outside the city gates. "As far as THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST, SO FAR HAS HE REMOVED OUR TRANSGRESSIONS FROM US "- Psalms 103:12 All our sins have been washed away, past, present and future, once and for all - Hebrews 9:26 / 10:10. Toda Abba Yah'uvah. :)Blessings y'all.

We hear that our sins have been cast as far as the east is from the west but what does that mean? When we are in doubt of forgivness just look no further than the cross it has the power to save and his outstreached hands took our sin and cast them as far as the east is from the west.

Beautiful | Reviewer: Jesus freak | 9/11/12

I love this song. If feels like the song writer has taken the words right out of my heart.I love how honest and real it is and how much so many christians can relate to it. Beautiful.

Life Changing | Reviewer: Erica C | 2/1/08

I heard this song on a youth retreat and It made me cry. I have had so many issues with my faith lately as alot of my family has passed away and my brother left home. I was at a point in life where I felt abandoned by God and this song made me realize that I hadn't been and that he would forgive me for being so hard headed and turning away from him when I really needed him in my life. It was to this song that I gave my heart back to the lord.

God Rocks! | Reviewer: ashlynn | 1/16/08

the first time i heard this song was at church and it almost made me cry.
But it also made me think... How many things has God done for us that i haven't said thank you for, or how many times have i not listened to God, and He still loves me. I couldn't do any of the things that He did and does. i hope that you try to figure what the words of the song mean to you , put a lot of hope and thinking into it!

Return to Me | Reviewer: Aubree | 12/15/07

My life is out of control. I have been struggling with faith for so long, and I'm young! i thought this was supposed to happen when Christians got older. But even though I'm still struggling to grasp how extravagantly I am loved by the Lord, and trying to become assured of my salvation, this song helps me remember that God never changes. He's the same God I used to find so much joy in. He's holding onto me.....Without you, God, I don't know where I'd be. Thank you.

Rest | Reviewer: Buck | 12/15/07

This song remindes me of Matthew 11:28. He gives us REST. For all of you who are weary, you might want to read this verse. Don't be discouraged. God bless you all, and Merry Christmas! Luke 2:11 thank you Lord. in the arms of your mercy i find rest. Amen

East to West | Reviewer: Andrea | 11/4/07

I felt my life spinning out of control. I was sinning and let sin almost cost me my family, I heard this song and it made me realize it is so easy to sin and harder to be a christian. Now I am trying so hard to be the christian I was. East to West made me realize God forgives and never leaves us no matter what. It is up to us to make sure we pass on his word and share our lifes drama to help others see there is someone who loves you no matter what. I know God was my only friend thru my tough time. God bless everyone!
