Way of the Cross

Manoling Francisco, SJ

Ref:
We carry the saving cross through the roads of the world,
Through the alleys of poverty and misery,
Marching to a dawning day, to freedom and victory
To God's life and endless glory.

5. Christ, redeemer, crowned with piercing thorns, He leads the way of the cross.

6. Christ, victor through the saving cross, He leads the way of the cross.

7. Christ, humble servant aided by Simon, He leads the way of the cross.

8. Christ, our healer, consoler of those who grieve, He leads the way of the cross.

9. Christ, son of david, stripped of his glory, He leads the way of the cross.

10. Christ, good shepherd, on the cross crucified, He leads the way of the cross.

11. Christ, son of mary immolated for all of us, He leads the way of the cross.

12. Christ, lamb of God, for us sinners crucified, He leads the way of the cross.

13. Christ, our savior in the tomb laid to rest, He leads the way of the cross.

  1. Wrong lyrics for 1st verse. Should be "self-giving", not "self-serving".
