God bless this child,
With heavenly gifts,
Of faith and hope and love.
With smiles to share,
And friends who care,
And guidance from above.

A little bit of Heaven,
drifted down from above,
A handful of happiness,
a heart full of love,
The mystery of life,
so sacred and sweet,
The giver of joy,
so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless,
so loveable, too,
The world's sweetest miracle,
Baby (name) is you.

May He guide those tiny footsteps
On the path that leads above,
And fill the happy years ahead,
With His abiding Love.

May God grant you always,
A sunbeam to warm you.
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel,
So nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you,
And whenever you pray.
Heaven to hear you.

You’ve been a special blessing,
since the day that you arrived
Bringing so much happiness
and filling hearts with pride…
And now that it’s your Christening Day,
This brings a special prayer.
That God will always keep you
In the shelter of his care.

May beauty delight you,
And happiness uplift you,
May wonder fulfill you,
And love surround you.
May your step be steady,
And your arm be strong,
May your heart be peaceful,
And your word be true.
May you seek to learn,
May you learn to live,
May you live to love,
And may you find real love,
And always be surrounded by true love.

Our Wish To You
May you know the gift of friendship,
Feel the sun upon your face,
May you win by displaying dignity,
And accept defeat with grace.
May you marvel at the wonders,
Of nature and the earth.
May you value education,
And know your true worth.
May you live and love with honesty,
And do the right thing.
May you thrive upon a challenge,
And sing and dance and laugh.
May you know the joy of wonderment,
And follow your own path.

Our Wish For You
Behind you, all your memories,
Before you, all your dreams.
Around you, all who love you,
And within you, all you need.

We love you...
For the girl that you are,
The woman you will become,
And the precious daughter
You will always be.

We love you...
For the boy that you are,
The man you will become,
And the precious son
You will always be.

We love you...
For the child that you are,
The adult you will become,
And for the precious gift
You will always be.

A little bit of Heaven
Drifted down from above.
A handful of happiness,
A heart full of love.
This is our wish for you;
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can deliver,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth.
