  • Down the Vía Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day
    The soldiers tried to clear the narrow street
    But the crowd pressed in to see
    The Man condemned to die on Calvary

    He was bleeding from a beating, there were stripes upon His back
    And He wore a crown of thorns upon His head
    And He bore with every step
    The scorn of those who cried out for His death

    Down the Vía 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.

    Por la Vía Dolorosa, triste día en Jerusalén
    Los soldados le abrían paso a Jesús.
    Más la gente se acercaba,
    Para ver al que llevaba aquella cruz.

    Por la Vía Dolorosa, que es la via del dolor
    Como oveja vino Cristo, Rey y Señor,
    Y fue Él quien quiso ir por su amor por ti y por mí.
    Por la Vía Dolorosa al Calvario y a morir.

    The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
    Made its way through the heart of Jerusalem.

    Down the Vía 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 Vía Dolorosa, all the way to Calvary. Publisher: CAPITOL CHRISTIAN MUSIC GROUP
