A lone spiritual drummer, marches across the cold
Strumming a sacred hymns mystical tune,
Does ignorance orphan child, beat at his canvas drum,
Starvation's hungry kindred, yet in faith’s devotion,
He has found strengths salvation, and so he plays on.
Above is illuminations guiding star,
Shines in glories divine heights on high.
Smile do the angel’s in the heaven's chorus,
Keeping the rheum with this marching
Soldier of God, thread baron sandaled feet ache,
But the heart of youth feels
It not, for his little song is all he has to give,
To the innocent lamb of the lord, God!
Oh in his weakness of his limbs throbbing,
As the devils scorpions sting at
The feet of this drummer of faith,
But joyous purity lights up the heart
From within him, so he plays on.
Although many caravans of wealth offer him comforts warmth,
Or foods fragrances of substances richness could he stop, and
Taste, yet he moves onwards forth, continuing
To play on.
Left unguarded flocks of sheep, wander aimlessly amongst
The cities ancient cobble stone streets, yet they shy from
This lad as if knowing, this is the message sounder,
Proclaiming the birth of the savior is at hand,
And the plays on.
In a humble barn, in the poorest part of town,
A child of grace is born unto the world of men,
And in is face shines the glow of deliverance,
Hope, and peace for all humanity,
And the song plays on.
Kneeling before this tiny figure, the drummer plays
His final tones of worship, for on this night he joins in
A mightier choir, wrapped in the everlasting warmth
Of his true fathers house, amongst the heavens,
And the so his little song plays on.
