East and West | Jonathan David Helser

W209.inddEast went lookin’ for West
And never found him

Guilt went lookin’ for my past
But only found love

I heard about a sea where
Sin sinks like stones

There’s no floor
There’s just mercy down below 

You can run for all your days
But you’ll never run away
There’s no mistake I can make
That could ever make you change
Your love

I heard about a Man with holes in His hands
He can hide mountains of sin in them
His smile destroys my religion
His love shakes down my prison

You can run for all your days
But you’ll never run away
There’s no mistake I can make
That could ever make you change
Your love

Oh…oh…

East went lookin’ for West and never found him…

“As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.”
Psalm 103:12

About Mel Wild

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 36 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace. I'm also senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Wisconsin.
