Don't Throw My Past At Me

As far as the east is
from the west, so far
hath he removed our
transgressions from
us.     Psalm 103:12

When my past comes back to haunt me,
Reminding me of some old sin,
I tell Satan, "Get thee behind me!
Don't bring this up again!"

"Don't try to fill my heart with shame,
Throwing the past up in my face;
For my Savior has forgiven me,
And covered me with His grace."

"His blood atoned for all my sin,
He died, to set me free,
Never again can you condemn me,
So don't throw my past at me!"

"For all my sins are as far away
As the east is from the west,
They'll nevermore be remembered,
Buried deep in forgetfulness."

"God's love is higher, wider, deeper,
Than you can ever comprehend;
I am His precious, well-loved child,
And He controls my end!"

"So I rebuke you, Satan,
You cannot condemn me;
Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior,
Is my only authority."

"He freed me from the burden
Of all your guilt, and lies, and shame;
That's why I'll ever sing His praises,
And bless His Holy Name!"
