I had quite a busy day today but on the whole I am quite pleased with it.

The day started with my vocal training; followed by breakfast and lunch at the same time in the same restaurant on the insistence of my son who is unhappy he missed breakfast because we woke up late; a visit to the International Book Fair where I spent a bundle of cold hard cash on books, books and books; rushed to church for band practice for tomorrow's worship service; attended our church pastor's 65th birthday celebration; and now at home trying to figure out html to get this blog looking the way I want it to look.

Anyway, I will be sharing with the congregation tomorrow, this spectacular but poignant song by Sandi Patti, Via Dolorosa or The Way of Suffering: for worship in the 1st service and for anthem in the 2nd. This is one song that bring tears to my eyes.

Via Dolorosa by Sandi Patti

Down the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem that day
The soldiers tried to clear the narrow street
But the crowds pressed in to see
The man condemned to die on Calvary
He was bleeding from the beating
There were stripes upon his back
And he wore the 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

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

  2. Hi! Hmmm... I don't think I will use this song on Easter morn.
    To me, a song of celebration would be more appropriate.

    But if you feel you want to do this song, you can but do follow up with a song celebrating his resurrection; coz it's Easter and we need to celebrate Jesus as the risen Lord :)

    In Christ,
