Writer(s): Bernie Herms, Mark Hall

Theme(s): Grace & Mercy

Tempo: Medium

Chorus 1
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
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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 Your leaving me this way
Bridge
I know You've washed me white
Turned my darkness into light
I need Your peace to get me through
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
Chorus 2
Jesus You know 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
Ending
One scarred hand to the other
From one scarred hand to the other
