my favorite christmas song



especially this version.

... and i also like this version. and it often will make me cry.



this song is just so humbling. if you really listen to the words... it's amazing.

....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.


the little drummer boy had nothing to give the Christ child, but he played his drum... all he could do. He played his best. We need to play our best.

That's my favorite Christmas song too! I love the David Bowie/Bing Crosbey version the best.
