"How Far" Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
I kept running and running and running
You kept chasing and chasing and chasing

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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”

[Pre-Chorus]
So I came running and running and running
And You kept reaching and reaching and reaching, Lord

[Chorus]
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

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

[Chorus]
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

[Outro]
How far Your love will go
How far Your love will go
That’s how far Your love will go
