by Casting Crowns

Capo 2 (To match original recording)

Intro:

Em    C/E    G/D      D Em    G/D    Bm/D        C

           D	            Em
Here I am Lord and I'm drowning 
         G             C
In your sea of forgetfulness 
	         D               Em
The chains of yesterday surround me 
     G                 C
I yearn for peace and rest 
                 D                 Em
I don't want to end up where you found me
          G           C
And it echoes in my mind
      D           C
Keeps me awake tonight
               D              Em
I know you've cast my sins as far
        G                C  
As the East is from the West
        D               Em
And I stand before you now
     G                  C
As though I've never sinned but today 
    D                Em           G/B
I feel like I'm just one mistake away
 	   C              D
From you leaving me this way 
C                  
Jesus can you show me 

         Em7               G      Dsus      D        
Just how far the East is from the West 
               Am
Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been 
        C              D
Come rising up in me again 
        Em7           G           Dsus        D
In the arms of your mercy I find rest 
	        Am                       G/B      C
Cause you know just how far the East is from the West 

From one scarred hand to the other 

Instrumental

Em        Dsus    D     (x2)        C

             D            Em
I start the day the war begins 
           G             C
Endless reminding of my sin 
          D        
Time and time again 		
      Em                  G                C
Your Truth is drowned out by the storm I'm in
         D                 Em           G/B
Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away 
            C             D
From you leaving me this way
 
C			
Jesus can you show me 
         Em7              G       Dsus        D
Just how far the East is from the West 
               Am 
Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been 
        C              D
Come rising up in me again
        Em7          G           Dsus        D
In the arms of your mercy I find rest 
                Am                      G/B       C
Cause you know just how far the East is from the West 

From one scarred hand to the other

Bridge 

G                        D/F#
I know you've washed me white 
                         Em
Turned my darkness into light
                     C/E
I need your peace to get me through
   C                     G
To get me through this night
                        Bm7 
I can't live by what I feel 
			      Em
But by the truth your word reveals 


		       C
I'm not holding on to you 
                       Em        Em/D
But your holding on to me 
                   Em7
Your holding on to me 

D                         G
Jesus, you know just how far 
                     D/F#
The East is from the West 
         Em            
I don't have to see the man I've been
      C/E               C                                            
Come rising up in me again 
        G                         D#7
In the arms of your mercy I find rest 
                Am                      G/B       C
Cause you know just how far the East is from the West
