As far as the east is from the west

Posted by on July 17, 2006

The most AMAZING thing happened tonight! I was sitting and writing in my prayer journal, and AS I WAS WRITING, my prayer turned into a song! I could hear the tune and everything in my head! It was AMAZING! Definitely from God! :) So I rushed downstairs to figure out chords to it. And it actually sounds good! Usually when I am trying to write a song, it doesn’t come out right. But, I honestly don’t feel like I wrote this song – it was all God!
Verse 1:
Lord, I feel ashamed to come to You again
With the same ugly sin upon my shoulders,
But I know You give forgiveness as soon as I ask.
You have no hesitation, and You always love me back.

As far as the east is from the west
So far have You removed my transgressions from me.
No matter what I’ve done,
You are ready to forgive,
As far as the east is from the west.

Verse 2:
Lord, I thank you for your grace in my life,
That You died upon the cross for my sins.
It must have been so hard when the Father turned His back,
But You gave Your life to wash me white as snow.
