Special poems for baptism invitation

These poems can be used for the invitation. They beautifully frame the baptism invitation and make it very special.

We finally have our treasure
it's a cute little baby.
It is nice when young parents and their child are
are happy and content.
But it gives us even more joy:
You come to the baptism, it is our wish.
We want you to accompany this child
and go with us to his baptism.

Our darling was born
and has the special place with us,
but it is not only our child,
just because we are its parents,
so shall God also be a father,
then the child's soul will remain pure,
so we ask God's blessing
for our child on all its ways.

We bring a child to baptism.
God grant that it may soon walk.
We wish that it will thrive
and not to cry too often.

On the day of baptism we wish from the depths of our souls,
that trust in God will never be lacking.
Yes, whoever walks through life by God's hand,
will be protected and well guided!
