East to West – Casting Crowns [with lyrics]

     This is a great song. One of the reasons why I love this song so much is that I can identify with so much of this song. I know what it feels like to think that you are drowning in God’s sea of forgetfulness, and to yearn for peace of mind from my past. I know what it feels like to pray to God for him to not leave me where I am at, to save me, and to take me out of the pit that I was in. I have even longed for God to show me just how far he has cast my sin and shame from me. Did you know that east and west don’t meet? This song is about Jesus taking our sin and casting it from the east to west…our sin is taken so far away from us that it will never meet us again!!! Jesus’ arms were spread out (east to west) for us when he died upon the cross for us. That we may be reconciled with God. Psalms 103:12 “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us”. I can identify with every part of this great song.
