La Via Dolorosa – English & Spanish – Vocal Music

a few months ago

La Via Dolorosa, or the “Way of Suffering” is the street located in Old Jerusalem, that is reputed to be the path that Jesus took on the way to his crucifixion.

This memorable song, sung in both English and Spanish, is a heart-wrenching reminder of God’s great love for you and me.

Lyrics for La Via Dolorosa

Down the Via 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 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.

Por la Via Dolorosa, triste dia en Jerusalem
Los saldados le abrian paso a Jesus
Mas la gente se acercaba
Para ver al que llevaba aquella cruz

Por la Via Dolorosa, que es la via del dolor
Como oveja vino Cristo, Rey, Senor
Y fue El quien quiso ir por su amor por ti y por mi
Por la Via Dolorosa al Calvario y a morir

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

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.
