A bystander tells the Bible story of a woman caught in adultery who is about to be stoned. Upbeat and thought-provoking: who will cast the first stone?

Lyrics

Cast the First Stone
Music by Dinah Satterwhite
Words from John 8: 1-11

This morning I rose from my bed

I’m going to see Jesus today

I’ve longed so to hear what he said

He’ll teach us and heal us I pray

 

The temple was filled with such light

A soft wash of color so warm

But something was really not right

A crowd rumbled much like a storm

 

Making my way to the side

Past faces of hate and of fear

I saw Jesus circled inside

Stooped down as if he could not hear

 

Only cast the first stone

If you have not sinned

If you’re free of doubt

If you’re pure of heart

 

Or can you forgive

Be humble with grace

Can pride be erased

Who will cast the first stone?

 

A man told me of a great wrong

His wife was not faithful to him

She cheated and he won’t wait long

With his fist full of rocks, his face grim

 

The woman looked lost and alone

Our Master was asked what to do

The law said that she should be stoned

Dear Jesus please say what is true

 

Jesus stood up he and declared

“If you have no sin to be found

Then cast the first stone here and now”

He stooped down to write on the ground

The room became silent somehow

 

They left one by one with no sound

Each one finding guilt of their own

I reached the door and looked around

At a room full of one hundred stones

 

“Where have they gone?” Jesus said

“Had they not thrown any stones?”

The woman she lifted her head

Saying “Master, no not even one”

 

Only cast the first stone

If you have not sinned

If you’re free of doubt

If you’re pure of heart

 

Or can you forgive

Be humble with grace

Can pride be erased

Who will cast the first stone?

 

The woman departed with grace

Forgiveness was all she asked for

She had thanked Him with tears on her face

And left, to do wrong no more
