Neither do I condemn thee!!

By the crowd of worshippers, 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.

Chorus: 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.

Chorus: 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.

"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.

Chorus: 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."

I love this above song and today this is what our minister preached on. It is found in John 8:1-11 (below):

1Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.


I like this song and Scripture very much not only because it is true but because it shows the mercy, love and forgivness God has for man..God can forgive ALL sin no matter how bad or horrible it is. It is unbelievable but IT IS TRUE!! Everyone has sinned and come short of the Glory of God but God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross to take that sin away!! I was just amazed once again. And it makes me so happy that I am able to go to heaven because God forgave all my sin!! These are just some thoughts I had today. God is so good!!

  1. I grew up in a broken, alcoholic home. My grandma on my dad's side however was a godly Christian woman. My dad died when I was 11 and my step dad , who was an atheist forbid me to see any of my dad's family. When I got old enough I visited my grandma and stayed with her for a while . One night she got out an old record player and found a recording of this song and played it. She said it was her favorite song. Sometimes, in my life's biggest failures, the memory of sitting on her bed and listening to this song goes through my mind and encourages me to keep trying. I want to thank you for posting this. It has found me again in a time of testing and failure, and has encouraged me again.

    THANKS!
