And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. Zechariah 13:9

♪♫Come, they told me, pa rum pum pum pum♪♫
"Come, come with us! We have someone special for you to meet"

♪♫Little Baby, pa rum pum pum♪♫
"Sweet Baby Jesus...."
♪♫I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum♪♫
"Seeing that You were born in this stable among the animals,
having to sleep in a wooden straw padded manger,
You must be poor. I, too, am poor."
♪♫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♪♫
"I am sorry, Baby Jesus, I have nothing
that seems good enough to give You, a King."
♪♫Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum, On my drum? ♪♫
"But, Jesus, I can worship You!
Shall I do that?"
♪♫Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum♪♫
"Yes, you have my permission to worship my son,
the King," said humble Mary.
"He will understand"
♪♫The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum♪♫
All got quiet in the stable while I knelt beside the manger
worshiping Jesus and acknowledging Him as MY King.
The animals sensed that this was
a special occasion and they too worshiped the King.
♪♫I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum♪♫
I worshiped from the bottom of heart,
surrendered to Him my everything,
for He alone is worthy of my best.
He was born to be my Savior, my counselor,
♪♫Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum Me and my drum♪♫
He smiled at me!
He was pleased with me, with my offering!
He excepted my worship, my praise, my surrender,
my simple pa rum pum pum pum.
So, my friends, come! Come with me!
I have someone special for you to meet this Christmas Season!
His name is Jesus and
helongs for you to kneel beside that wooden manger,
to recognize who He is and for you to offer
your simple pa rum pum pum pum.
Come! Learn of Him as He grew older,
as He did the will of His Father by
ministering to the needy,
convicting the sinful,
teaching the willing,
condemning the hypocrites,
being crucified on a wooden cross
to pay for the sins of all the world.
He longs for you to kneel beside that wooden cross,
to recognize who He is, what He did for you,
bringing nothing but worship and surrender,
your simple pa rum pum pum pum.
♪♫Then He'll smile at you, pa rum pum pum pum, You and your drum♪♫
This is strictly my interpretation of "Little Drummer Boy." May you see the beauty in this simple song.
