Little Drummer Boy

I was trying so hard to narrow down what song of mine was my favourite. It is too hard to just pick one song, and I decided that I am going to share with you a few of my favourites this month. Christmas music is the best way to get into the holiday mood. 

The Drummer Boy 

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum 
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum 
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum 
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum, 
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum, 
When we come. 

Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum 
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum 
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum 
That's fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum, 
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, 

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum, 
On my drum? 

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum 
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum 
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum 
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum, 
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, 

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


There is just something about this song that gives me chills. The line "come they told me" brings excitement, as if I am the little Drummer Boy being told of the exciting news of Jesus. "I have no gifts to bring" is my constant trying to figure out what it is that I could possibly give Him. I am just poor, mom, wife, what do I have that He would like? "I played my best for him" the realization that, wait a minute, He doesn't want me to compare myself to others, wishing I could bring Him gold or other treasures I do not have, but He wants me to use the gifts that I have to honour Him. He wants me to use the position I am in now to honour Him. Right now? I don't need to be anyone else or have anything else. "Then He smiled at me." Ah chills! 

If you also love the Little Drummer Boy, David Bowie & Bing Crosby does a fantastic duet together and I just found Pentatonix's Version. Click on the links and it will take you to YouTube so you can hear them! 

What is your favourite song? I would love to hear!
