• Birth and Christening Prose 01

    by Kate Douglas Wiggins
    Every child born into the world is a new thought of God
    An ever fresh and radiant possibility.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 02

    by Charles Dickens
    I love these little people;
    and it is not a slight thing,
    when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 03

    by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
    In praising or loving a child,
    we love and praise not that which is,
    but that which we hope for.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 04

    by Tyron Edards
    Honor thy parents, those that gave thee birth,
    and watched in tenderness thine earliest days,
    and trained thee up in youth, and loved in all.
    Honor, obey and love them; it shall fill their souls with holy joy,
    and shall bring down God's richest blessing on thee;
    and in days to come, thy children, it they're given,
    shall honor thee, and fill thy life with peace.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 05

    Remember the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, how he said, "Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God."
  • Birth and Christening Prose 06

    by Isaac Watts
    Lord, teach me all that I should know:
    In grace and wisdom I may grow;
    The more I learn to do Thy will,
    The better may I love Thee still.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 07

    by Cecil Francis Alexander
    All things bright and beautiful,
    All creatures, great and small,
    All things wise and wonderful,
    The Lord God made them all.

    Each little flower that opens,
    Each little bird that sings,
    He made their glowing colors,
    He made their tiny wings.

    The tall trees in the greenwood,
    The meadows there we play,
    The rushes by the water
    We gather every day.

    He have us eyes to see them,
    And lips that we might tell
    How great is God Almighty,
    Who has made all things well.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 08

    by St. Richard of Chinchester
    God made the world so broad and grand,
    Filled with blessings from His hand.
    He made the sky so high and blue,
    And all the little children too.

    Peace be to this house
    And to all who dwell in it.
    Peace be to them that enter
    And to them that depart.

    Day by day, dear Lord, of Thee
    Three things I pray:
    To see Thee more clearly,
    To love Thee more dearly,
    To follow Thee more nearly,
    Day by day.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 09

    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    I pray Thee, Lord, Thy child to keep:
    Thy love guard me through the night
    And wake me with the morning light.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 10

    What are little girls made of?
    Sugar and spice, and everything nice.
    That what little girls are made of.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 11

    What are little boys made of?
    Ships and snails, and puppy dog's tails.
    That's what little boys are made of.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 12

    Boys are found everywhere - on top of,
    underneath, inside of, climbing on,
    swinging from, running around, or jumping to.
    Mothers love them, little girls hate them,
    older sisters and brothers tolerate them,
    adults ignore them and Heaven protects them.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 13

    by Alan Beck
    A boy is truth with dirt on it's face.
    Beauty with a cut on it's finger,
    Wisdom with bubble gum in it's hair,
    and the Hope of the future with a frog in it's pocket.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 14

    by St. Clement
    O God, make us children of quietness and heirs of peace.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 15

    Thank Heaven for little girls
    For little girls grow sweeter everyday.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 16

    by Alan Beck
    Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people.
    They are born with a little bit of angel shine about them,
    and though it wears thin sometimes,
    thee is always enough left to lasso your heart-
    even when they are sitting in the mud,
    or crying temperamental tears,
    or parading up the street in mother's best clothes.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 17

    by Douglas MacArthur
    Build me a son, O Lord,
    who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
    and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid,
    one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
    and humble and gentle in victory.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 18

    Never forget to remember the blessings that come each day.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 19

    See as a child sees;
    The joy,
    The wonder,
    The hope.
  • Birth and Christening Prose 20

    by John H. Gower
    We bring them Lord, in thankful hands,
    And yielding them up to thee;
    Joyful that we ourselves are thine,
    Thine let our off-spring be.
  • The Sacrament of Baptism

    O God, our heavenly Father, grant that this child,
    as <he/she> grows in years, may also
    grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ,
    and that by the restraining and renewing influence
    of the Holy Spirit <he/she> may ever be a true child of
    thine, serving thee faithfully all of his/her days.
    So guide and uphold the parents of this child that by
    giving care, wise counsel, and holy example, they
    may lead <him/her> into that life of faith whose strength
    is righteousness and whose fruit is everlasting joy
    and peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • The Sarum Prayer

    God be in my head,
    And in my understanding;
    God be in my eyes,
    And in my speaking;
    God be in my heart,
    And in my thinking;
    God be at my end,
    And at my departing.
