SONday Morning Song - Neither Do I Condemn Thee.....

 It has to be at least 15 years since a friend and I last sang this song together in the church we used to attend.  She would play the piano and we sang it together.  I hadn't even thought about it until I heard the word "condemn" yesterday.
Sweet memories!

Neither Do I Condemn Thee 

By the crowd of worshipers, sorry for their sins, 
Was a poor wanderer, rudely brought in; 
Scribes came and Pharisees anxious to see 
What the meek Nazarene's verdict would be. 

Neither do I condemn thee, precious words divine, 
From the lips of mercy like the sweetest chime. 
Wonderful words of Jesus, sing them o'er and o'er, 
"Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more." 

They told of her wanderings, making each flaw, 
Spoke of her punishment, quoting the law, 
Writing upon the ground sadly and slow, 
But said He unheedingly, head bending low. 

Still cried the Pharisee’s “pray Master pray 
What shall we do with her, what doth Thou say 
Then said he rebukingly let the first stone 
Come from the sinless hands, hence and alone 

Cheeks flushing with the shame, turning about 
And from His presence, walking slowly out 
Then saw we standing there, head bending low 
He who the world despised, bade her sin no more 

Spoke He most tenderly, pray, woman, pray, 
Hast thou no accusers?" "nay, Master, nay," 
"Neither do I condemn thee, soul, sick and sore; 
Go forth, I pardon thee, go and sin no more

Happy SONday, Everybody!!!

Breathing in Grace,

  1. Love that old song "Neither do I condemn thee". My old church in West Virginia sung it. One of my favorites.
