February 17th is Ash Wednesday and I have been looking over Lenten hymns. One that I particularly like is "When Jesus Left His Father's Throne" by James Montgomery. It is in the Aeolian mode and is set to an Old English melody. You can find it in The Dulcimer Hymn Book" by Bud and Donna Ford. I plan to do this as a video on FOTMD closer to Palm Sunday:" I particularly like the verse in "When Jesus Left His Father's Throne":
"When Jesus into Zion rode The children sang around; For joy they plucked the palms and strowed Their garments on the ground..."
