Billy Sprague and Niles Borop
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 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 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 CAVALRY.
The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
Made its way through the heart of Jerusalem
