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

Bible Quotes for Baptism

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Romans 6:3

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. Colossians 2:12

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:16

And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Acts 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. Acts 2:41

And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. John 3:23

Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Mark 1:5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

Matthew 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, Matthew 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Matthew 3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. Matthew 3:5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, Matthew 3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

Was sent from Heaven above;
As you celebrate his (her) Christening
You're surrounding him (her) with love.

Christening Verses Poems Quotes 

As you join this family
We love having you around;
Within this new family
You'll find Gods love abound.

Jesus is the one through whom
Your entrance ticket bought;
With his life's sacrifice
His fishing net you've caught.

Fishers of men his disciples were
And that's what you'll become;
Living by Gods high standards
As if you and he were one.

Some of the names we've used since you were born
Are not appropriate at all;
In our exhausted moments usually around 3a.m.
A few names you were called.

Everyone has been full of ideas
So seriously we have been deep in thought;
Spending time poring over books
Giving serious study and time we ought.

But in the end after much debate
A film stars name we found:
So Jodie is the name for you
We like the name , we like the sound.

Christening Verses Poems Quotes

As the droplets of water
On your forehead fall;
You will bear the mark
And answer his call.
To follow his footsteps
Be as nice as nice can be;
Bring praise and honor to his name
And pride to your Grandad and me.

Christening Verses Poems Quotes 

As your Godparents from this day
We will set a good example;
So being good and being kind
And that is just a sample.

Respect and honor for your parents
Is one of the famous ten;
Grandparents and Godparents count too
So that's our prayer, Amen

Maggie-May © 2010

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.

Bob Dylan
