1- Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day,
or this with different editing from St-Takla.org
Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day,
The soldiers tried to clear the narrow streets,
but the crowd pressed in to see
the Man condemned to die on Calvary.
He was bleeding from the beating, there were stripes upon his back,
And He wore a crown of thorns upon His head,
He bore with every step
The scorn for those who cried out for his death.
Down the Via Dolorosa called the way of suffering,
Like a lamb came the Messiah…Christ the King!
But he chose to walk that road out of his love for you and me.
Down the Via Dolorosa all the way to Calvary.
The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men,
Made its way through the heart
He walked that road for YOU and ME…to Calvary
