East to West

|C/E  D/F# |Em   G    |
Here I am Lord and I'm drowning
In Your sea of forgetfulness
|C/E  D/F# |Em   G    |
The chains of yesterday surround me
I yearn for peace and rest
|C    D    |Em   G/H  |
I don't want to end up where You found me
|C    D/F# |C         |
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

  |C         |
  Jesus can You show me just how
  |Em   G    |D         |
  Far the East is from the West
  |Am        |
  Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been
  |C         |
  Come rising up in me again
  |Em   G    |D         |
  In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
  |Am   G/H  |
  You know just how far the east is from the west
  |C    D    | (Em)
  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

  |G         |D/F#      |
  I know You've washed me white
  |Em        |
  Turned my darkness into light
  |G/C  C    |
  I need Your peace to get me through
  |G         |
  To get me through this night
  |Hm        |
  I can't live by what I feel
  |Em        |
  But by the Truth Your word reveals
  |C         |
  And I'm not holding on to You
  |Em        |D         |
  But You're holding on to me
  |Em        |D         |
  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
You know just how far 
The east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the
