A Man Condemned to Die on Calvary



FROM THE VOICE OF SANDI PATTI
"VIA DOLOROSA"
ALBUM: FINEST MOMENTS
 
"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 through the heart of Jerusalem."

Have a very blessed Easter weekend!

We are in AZ visiting our youngest daughter and her husband. On Easter Sunday we were in the town of Sedona. They had a man walking the streets pulling his cross and a soldier walking along and striking him now and then to keep moving. It really hit home as to all the suffering Jesus did for us!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter!
Hugs,
