Lyrics

How far is too far
I thought I’d be there by now
I followed shame to the place
I was sure Your grace ran out

I kept running and running and running
You kept chasing and chasing and chasing

A million miles of my mistakes
Still couldn’t keep Your love away
However far away I am from home
That’s how far Your love will go… go…

I turn around and I see
Pure compassion in Your eyes
A Savior’s voice says to me
Time to come back home, my child

So I came running and running and running
And You kept reaching and reaching and reaching, Lord

A million miles of my mistakes
Still couldn’t keep Your love away
However far away I am from home
That’s how far Your love will go… go…

Mercy’s arms stretched open wide
You paid it all
What kind of love lays down His life?
Willing to cross

A million miles of my mistakes
Still couldn’t keep Your love away
However far away I am from home
That’s how far Your love will go…

Oh, I couldn’t keep Your love away
However far away I am from home
That’s how far Your love will go…
How far Your love will go

Arms stretched open wide
That’s how far Your love will go

(How far Your love will go
How far Your love will go)

That’s how far Your love will go

About This Song

"Have you ever felt like God's forgiveness and grace would run out? Sometimes we can't help but think those kinds of thoughts. But that is not how scripture describes God. Psalm 103:12, 'As far as the east is from the west so far has He removed our transgressions from us.' His grace isn't running out on you. The song "How Far" is about, even in the middle of us hiding from God or even running from Him, Him continuing to reach out and pursue us. It was God's love for you that propelled Him to give His life on the cross - arms stretched open wide. That's how far He will go for you." - Tasha Layton
