Confessions of an Unlikely Worship Leader: The Little Drummer Girl

Confessions of an Unlikely Worship Leader | Free blog series by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.comI’m leading worship tonight at the healing rooms. I’ve been on my face about it. I can’t do this on my own. He’s going to have to do it through me.

This morning, on the way to work, the Lord touched me using the funniest song: the Little Drummer Boy. It just kind of welled up out of my spirit. I couldn’t remember all the words, so I sang it in any random order and made up my own words.

Like the Little Drummer Boy, I have no gift to bring that’s fit to give our King. Nevertheless, He smiles at me anyway. (And I will be leading worship on the piano, not the drums, obviously; but since I used to play djembe, this was still really special to me.) 🙂

Little Drummer Girl:

(My version of Little Drummer Boy by Katherine K. Davis, Henry Onorati and Harry Simeone)

Come, they told me, pa rum pum pum pum… our Lord and 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.

Lord and Savior, pa rum pum pum pum … I am your baby girl, 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?

Then He nodded, pa rum pum pum pum… the walls and bricks 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 takeaway: If we are worshipping our Father with the song of our heart, Father loves to receive our worship… whether we feel qualified to give it or not.
