7 Thought-Provoking Songs About the Crucifixion

7 Thought-Provoking Songs About the Crucifixion

Via Dolorosa

Latin for "Way of Sorrows" or "Way of Grief," Via Dolorosa was released by Grammy award-winning singer Sandi Patty in 1990 with lyrics both in English and Spanish.

Its name is taken from the road in Jerusalem believed to be the route that Jesus took on the way to be crucified. As the first verse goes,

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.
