The Christmas Drummer (medley)

The Christmas Drummer (medley)

 

Thought for the Day: How often do we feel our gifts are not good enough? We compare ourselves to others, wondering why their gifts seem so much more “useful” for the kingdom. We want to teach like our Pastor, or sing like our Worship Leader. Or maybe we want to share our blessings, but at times, we don’t feel very blessed. We can’t give what we don’t have, but rather than lamenting our lack, we need to look for our “drum”, the one thing that only we can give.

Think of ways that you can bless others this season and in turn bless God. You don’t have to spend money. You just have to give of yourself, of your heart. Just like the little Drummer Boy. And Jesus smiled at him. Think of Jesus smiling at you. Kind of makes your heart race, doesn’t it? Listen.

               Pat-a-pan

               Words and Music: Bernard de La Monnoye, 1720

               (a French Christmas carol originally written in the Burgundian dialect)

Willie, bring your little drum, Robin, get your fife, and come,

And be merry while you play, Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan

We will listen as you play for the joy for Christmas day.

 

When the men of olden days gave the King of Kings their praise

They had pipes on which to play, Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan

They had drums on which to play for the joy of Christmas day.

 

God and man became today, more in tune than fife and drum,

So be merry while you play, Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan

Come be merry while you play on this joyous Christmas day.

 

 

               The Little Drummer Boy

               Words and Music: Katherine Kennicott Davis, 1941

 

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.
