           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

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

Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away 
            C             D
From you leaving me this way

Come rising up in me again
        Em7          G           Dsus        D
In the arms of your mercy I find rest

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

The East is from the West

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

About the artist behind East To West Chords:

Casting Crowns is a Grammy award and Dove Award winning Christian band that employs a soft rock music style. The band was created in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida as part of a Youth Group. He also serves as a lead vocalist. Later they moved to McDonough, Georgia and more members joined creating the band now known as Casting Crowns. Some members of the band currently work as ministers for Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia.

Discovered by, among others, contemporary Christian music legend Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns received a recording contract and vaulted to popularity in 2003 with their self-titled debut album Casting Crowns. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified Platinum. The band's third album The Altar and the Door debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and #1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August of 2007. Ten weeks after it came out it was certified Gold.

Casting Crowns has enjoyed tremendous success in the United States. They have released eight singles to date, seven of which have become consecutive number one hits on various Christian music charts. "Voice of Truth" spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at #1 beginning in 2003. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You In This Storm” remaining at #1 for seven weeks. Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single "East To West" from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at #1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date.
