The song lyrics really say it all. When we give it all over to God, He will cast our sin farther than we ever could on our own.
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
