I went to church just before Christmas and heard a version of this with a lot of drums and really enjoyed it so I thought I would have a look and see if something had inspired them and I found this –
I had never really thought about this song as biblically correct but I enjoyed it. So in checking the background to the song I found that it was written with the view that the little boy had come to the birth of Jesus with the Magi and he didn’t have a present so he played his drum to entertain the infant. Obviously there were not drums at the birth of Jesus but the question “what would I, do I, bring to Jesus” is a very important question.
For me I want to bring every musical ability I have and play it for him, just to see him smile. Welcome to 2020 and enjoy.
