A study of the dc Josephson current between two superconducting leads in the presence of a precessing classical spin is presented. The precession gives rise to a time-dependent tunnel potential which not only implies different tunneling probabilities for spin-up and spin-down quasiparticles, but introduces also a time-dependent spin-flip term. We provide an exact general analytic solution for the out-of-equilibrium steady-state permanent current between two spin-singlet superconductors as a function of the superconducting phase difference, the precession frequency and for arbitrary junction transparency. As an application we focus on the effects of the spin-flip term alone and show that the magnitude and nature of the Josephson current are indeed strongly affected by the precession of the classical spin.
