Drummer Boy – Why I’m so passionate about this song…

I played my best for him” and “He smiled at me” capture the essence of this powerful carol, “The Little Drummer Boy”, written by Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941. Upon seeing the Magi give their extravagant gifts to Jesus, the poor drummer boy gives all he has—his song, and finds the approval of the baby Jesus.

While the traditional arrangement may not stir deep attachment, the moving notion of the lyric still stirs our hearts. We want to give more to Jesus, but what He really wants is all of who we are, with all that we have, worshipping all of who He is. Above you will see an updated arrangement by Chris Glenn, with vocal sung by Blake Campbell, pushing the limits of percussion and vocal effort to present a truly moving version of “The Little Drummer Boy.”

Whatever it is you are doing today, you can do it your best and do it for Jesus. It may be a drum, a computer, cell phone or shovel, make what’s in your hand worship Jesus, and he’ll be smiling at you.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”  – Colossians 3:23-24
