"Via Dolorosa" as written by and Jack Mooring Leeland Mooring....
He traded his crown for a crown of thorns
He picked up His cross and laid down His sword
He stumbled down the road bruised and beaten for me
Jesus walked the way of grief
Hallelujah!

[Chorus]
On the via dolorosa!
All my sin was carried away!
And the power of Him was broken
As He gave His life away

He knew it was to come from the very start
But his love for the world beat inside His heart
He climbed the road of suffering to the hill of Calvary
Where the saints would be redeemed.
Hallelujah!

[Chorus]

Jesus fixed His eyes upon the new horizon
Soon he would arise and the world would be forgiven!
Jesus fixed His eyes upon the new horizon
Soon he would arise and the world would be forgiven!

Hallelujah, Jesus rose again!
On the cross He shed His blood on Calvary
I'm thankful for the journey of my King!

[Chorus]

He traded his crown for a crown of thorns

    General CommentFrom Leeland:

    "I wanted to write a song about the cross--Jesus coming down and what He did on the cross, about how He became a man, and how humbling that was, and how awesome it was for us that He did. When I brought the unfinished song to Ed [Cash, producer] and Jack, Ed said, 'I've always wanted to write a song about the Via Dolorosa. It's always been one of my biggest passions. But I've never had the right idea. What if we have this song not only talking about the cross, but talking about the road of suffering that Jesus walked on?' So we got so deep into it that we started pulling up pictures of the Via Dolorosa and clips of the The Passion of The Christ. We were praying and reading different scriptures about Jesus being beaten and bruised and walking down the road."
