A Song for Good Friday

Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day
The soldiers tried to clear the narrow street
But the crowd pressed in to see
A 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.

The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
Made its way to the heart of Jerusalem.
He walked that road for you and me … to Calvary

... from the song written by Billy Sprague and Niles Borop


  1. Amen, so glad He paid the price for us all.

  2. Oh, I love this song! God loves us so much and desires us to be with him. And Jesus truly suffered for us all.
