Christmas in Drumming
by Cheryl J. Howell
Dec. 10, 2012

Light fluffy snow falling on trees
Begins to settle there below,
Animals sense the excitement—​
Something is taking place, you know!

One little drummer beats a drum.
Small animals there in the wood
Stop in their tracks to listen close​​​​​—
Is the drum drumming something good?​

There's snow on the holly berries,
A beautiful sight to behold.
This little drum tells of the birth
Of the Christ child once born of old.

Drum! Drum! ​​​​​​​— Christmas time is coming,
There is a sweet song in the air!
All of creation joins the song,
Praise for Him is felt everywhere.

Have you felt the sweet love of God​​​​​—
Christmas is drumming, do you hear?
All of creation sings His song,
Tell me, do you hear what I hear?​​​
