Christmas Songs – Little Drummer Boy lyrics

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 our King
Pa rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Shall I play for you!
Pa rum 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
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.

    Then I gave it my best shot. And played my heart out for my Christ. I'm giving the talent God gave me, back to His son. So I will do my best with what I have. And Jesus smiled at me in return. Letting me know my gift is acceptable to Him. It doesn't have to be what the world says is acceptable or worthy to give the King. I offer myself and everything I have and am as a gift back to God for giving me the best Christmas gift.

    And this goes for me today, I am that little poor drummer boy. Even though I'm not a boy and I don't play the drums. I can offer God all that I am and all that I have. And He smiles down at me and grins. He is happy with my gift of myself. He wants everyone to become that Little Drummer Boy. God has given each person a talent to do in their life. He wants everyone to use it to bring Him honor, praise, and glory. What we should not do is compare our gift that we have to offer to anyone else's gift they have to offer. And if others begin to compare us, we need to ignore them since God is who we are trying to please, man is easily swayed what is right or acceptable.

    Wow, I'm hearing the words for the first time and been singing it for years.
    Come see Jesus other believers told me and bring the best that you have, for He is our King. And we really honor Him by just coming to Him.
    Jesus, I am poor, I have nothing to offer you that's worthy enough to give you. They are bringing you, our king, gold, frankenscence, and myrrh but all I have is the talent God gave me. It's not much but I offer it to you.
    Mary gave me the go ahead, and the animals even joined in.

    It's about simplicity. When the church, friends, family, the world compel you to pay attention to the message of Christmas remember it is the simplicity of the Christ child, what makes God's heart smile that in the end really counts. Forget the grinch, money, gift wrap and credit debt. Just come innocent to sit at the feet of innocent God and offer Him the best development of what He has given you in your life's purpose to do. "So to honor Him when we come". Your individuality is God's Christmas gift to you and you are enough for the child King and for a friend, a family member or your coworkers or boss, just as you are. Be the best of yourself. Attitude is everything.

    I think that this song is amazing because if you have 3 different parts (soprano, alto, tenors) that this would be a really pretty song. I love Christmas songs, they just fill me with joy. I love songs about Jesus. I have to sing these songs for choir and when people are actually trying, it sounds really cool. I encourage everyone to go on YouTube and listen to this song, and then go on keriokie and sing it. Thank you for reading!
