Song lyrics: "Via Dolorosa" [May. 21st, 2004|10:26 am]
Lizz
I just got my CD's for the Member Song Contest the other day. Last night I wanted to listen to them for the first time. Since I'm going to vote for these songs, it's probably a good idea to hear them a few times before voting. However, there are a few songs that stand out already, as well as one song which is really amazing. I'm going to post the lyrics here:

Via Dolorosa
Performed by: Sandi Patti

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

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.

Por la Via Dolorosa, triste dia en Jerusalem
Los saldados le abrian paso a Jesus
Mas la gente se acercaba
Para ver al que llevaba aquella cruz

Por la Via Dolorosa, que es la via del dolor
Como oveja vino Cristo, Rey, Senor
Y fue El quien quiso ir por su amor por ti y por mi
Por la Via Dolorosa al Calvario y a morir

The blood that would cleanse the souls of all men
Made its way to 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.

Wow, would you find it strange that I didn't notice the song was in two languages? I was thinking "Why is it repeating itself? Oh wait..." hahaha. I'm not even fluent in Spanish, but I hear it all the time and can understand it, so my brain is strange. ;)

I have a strange question; at the message board I post at, a new guy from Norway has arrived and I was mentioning something about the language, when I realized I don't know what it's called. I figured "norsk" but I'm sure that's not what it's called in English. I just said "Nordic" and hoped I was right. What is it supposed to be?

We speak Norwegian, and "norsk" is the Norwegian word for "Norwegian", so you know more than you think :) "Nordic" is more like a group of related languages - Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Faroese and Icelandic (I think that's all of them). Hope that made sense to you :)

As for the song...when I heard it for the first time, I didn't notice it was in two languages either. But I guess that was more because it was just played in the background, so I didn't pay much attention to it at first. Later, when I read through the information that came with my CD's, it was listed as being in "English/Spanish", and I was thinking "What? Where was the Spanish part?" and had to go and listen to it again.
