Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum…

One of my favorite Christmas songs is Little Drummer Boy.
As far as lyrics go it’s a pretty easy song.
However, it’s a pretty contemplative song as well, as far as lyrics go.
Come, they told me
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Our newborn King to see
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum

Our finest gifts we bring

Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
To lay before the King
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum,

rum, pa, pum, pum

So to honor Him

Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
When we come


Little Baby
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
I am a poor boy too
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum


I have no gift to bring
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
That’s fit to give a King
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum, rum, pa, pum, pum


Shall I play for You
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
On my drum, on my drum


I played my drum for Him
For You honored me

Mary nodded
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
The ox and lamb kept time
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum

I played my drum for Him

Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
I played my best for Him
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum, rum, pa, pum, pum


Then He smiled at me
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Me and my drum


When we come
Me and my drum

Even though I’m neither a boy nor a drummer I feel just like the little drummer boy – so often. I want to bring my best gifts and lay them before my King.
But, who am I?
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
All I can do is play my best for Him.
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
And, He smiles at me.
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
He smiles at you, too.
Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum, rum, pa, pum, pum
