Christening Poems

May angels guide you

May angels guide you on your journey in life,
and sprinkle you with their love and light.
May you have the gifts of laughter and song,
and be filled with dreams that last all the days long.
May you live and care with kindness and grace,
and know within your soul, courage and faith.
You will be wrapped in the warmth
of your family and friends, and rays of
love will shine on you without end.

A darling angel

Your darling little angel
Was sent from Heaven above
As you celebrate his (her) christening
You’re surrounding him (her) with love

A small child

A small child
So precious and sweet,
Has come into your lives
To make them complete.
Today is so special
In every which way
Enjoy baby (name)’s
Special Christening Day

First came love

First came love
Then came marriage
Then came (name)
In a baby carriage
Now’s the time
To make it all complete
And to hold the Christening
Of this child so sweet

Celtic blessing

May the strength of the wind and the light of the sun,
The softness of the rain and the mystery of the moon
Reach you and fill you.
May beauty delight you and happiness uplift you,
May wonder fulfil 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 love – always.

Welcome precious little child

Welcome, precious little child,
So fresh from God above,
Baptised today in Jesus’ name,
Held in His arms of love.
May angels guide your tiny feet
And bring you smiles to wear
And may our Heavenly Father
Always keep you in His care.

On this day

On this day of Baptism
May God, who loves us all,
Smile lovingly upon this child
So innocent and small
May He guide this darling girl
Throughout the years ahead
As blessings light the pathway
Where her tiny feet are led

Your tiny feet

May angels guide your tiny feet
And bring you smiles to wear
And may our heavenly Father
Always keep you in His care

Your Guardian angel

Wherever You Go
Whatever You Do
May Your Guardian Angel
Watch Over You

Our darling daughter

No earthly joys could bring
More pleasure
Than our beautiful girl
To love and to treasure
So may angels guide
Your tiny feet
Our darling daughter
So small and sweet

Footprints

“Walk a little slower Daddy” said a child so small
“I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up,
You’re what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So walk a little slower Daddy,
For I must follow you.

A christening blessing

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your children’s children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
