The Ballad of the Woman Caught in Sin

Once there was a woman who was living a life of sin,
With a broken heart and an aching soul she was empty deep within,
Like many of us who are just like her she tried to fill the space,
With wine and song and men and sex she ran the crazy race.

Then there came a day when they caught her in the act,
They hauled her before Jesus to see how he’d react,
'Cause the law of Moses decreed the punishment for a crime like this,
Was to be a stoning by everyone who thought this was remiss.

Jesus said, "If there’s anyone here without a single sin,
Take a stone and throw it at her and do the woman in."
One by one each hand dropped and the stones fell to the ground,
Every man there hung his head and walked back into town.

Jesus said to the woman, "Has no one condemned you?"
The woman said, "No one, Lord, now it's up to you."
She looked at him with dread and fear wondering what would be,
But Jesus smiled, said, "Sin no more; live forever free."

I’m free, I am saved,
I'm forgiven from my sin,
'Cause Jesus Christ the Son of God, 
Has taken me home with him.

I will live forever free,
With Jesus as my Lord,
With my Father and the Spirit,
Holy Triune God.
