    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.

      Every year in the St Thomas School Passion Play in CT this song is sung, it is so beautiful and one of my favorites, next to the song I had to sing (Shout to the Lord; I was Jirus's Daughter)

      This song is sung every year in CT's Passion Play. It never fails to get me, whether I've been a part of the play, or sitting in the audience. So beautiful, and powerful.

      I get goosebumps every time I hear this song. My youth group is doing a drama to it as part of our trip to Mexico this summer. It really is a reminder of what Christ went through for us.

      Here I am about a year later...I am surprised that I haven't heard this song this Easter season yet...maybe I will in the week right before Easter (aka...tomorrow and for the next week...).....I found it on Windows Media Player, but they don't have very good recordings of it.......

      This is the very first time I heard this song and it sounded like it was in Hebrew, so I came here to see if letssingit had the lyrics. It is sad. I hope to hear it more often this week, if not, next Easter. But the tune for this is kinda foreign to the U.S., so that added to the effect of the song. I second that you should try to listen to this song. I've heard it only once, but it touched me just listening to it that one time.

      I love this song! It's so awesome. I don't remember the tune as well as I should, though, so I wish I could listen to it somewhere.

      i had to sign this song a couple of years at my church. we will be up on the risers and signing and i just become one with the words that it scares me. i love this song so much. if you haven't heard this song, then you should because it's a great song even though it's sad.
