200!

For starters, this is my 200th post!  Hurray!

Secondly, I wanted to share the lyrics to a new song I wrote based off of John 8 and the account of the woman caught in adultery, specifically these verses:

Straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they?  Did no one condemn you?"
She said, "No one, Lord."  And Jesus said, "I do not condemn you, either.  Go.  From now on sin no more."
John 8:10-11

Have They Left You Here?

"Woman, have they left you here?
Though your sin is great, and you could not draw near?"
Then He lifted me, and He held me close,
And He said, "My daughter, no one will ever cast that stone."

On the road I tarry, knowing what before me waits
The chief men rush ahead of God, eager to deal my fate
They push and crowd and grip the stones, and look 'round to He
The One they call the Son of God, and He asks, "Is this she?"

I cannot meet His eyes.  I am guilty, He is God!
He is the Maker; I, the sod.
But from His mouth I hear kind words, strange to my ears,
And slowly the people dissipate; He says, "Woman, do not fear."

"Woman, they have left you here,
Though your sin is great and you cannot draw near.
Know My name is Love, and it is for you.
Come to Me, My daughter, though I know all that you do."

I'm going to try and record it soon, and when I do I'll post the video on here.  I hope you enjoyed it!

If you have time (and even if you don't, make time), check out this video that Luke posted on his blog.  It's incredible.
