Have you ever taken the time to truly ponder the meaning of the lyrics of the classic Christmas carol, "The Little Drummer Boy"?

The song is about a little boy.

They’ve told the people to come and lay before the “newborn king” their “finest gifts”. The boy travels to honor him.

He arrives, and he sees the squalor the Christ child has been born in and says, “I am a poor boy too.”, and then says, “I have no gift to bring” that is “fit for a king”.

But the boy is a drummer—he has one small, but meaningful gift he can give. He asks, “Shall I play for you?” Mary nods, confirming he can play for the divine. “I played my drum for him”….”I played my best for him”… In a fine decrescendo, the child smiles, acknowledging the humble gift.

He gave his all; his true best. All for the Christ child.
"Come, they told me pa-rum pum pum pum
Our newborn 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
Baby Jeśus, 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 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
Me and my drum"
