Dear Stefan!

Poems for baptism

You can use the poems for a congratulation, but also for the dew invitation or thank you card for baptism.

Three angels may accompany you
through a long lifetime.
And the three angels I mean,
are love, happiness and contentment.

On all your ways happiness and peace shall accompany you,
this wishes your godfather for all times.

May God's blessing
may God's blessing protect him abundantly.

May happiness and peace accompany you,
we wish for all times.

May the baptized child be guided by heaven
and give him many sunny hours.

Just like the water, my wish for baptism is clear:
May God accompany the child and the parents.
Everything will succeed,
whatever you do,
if only God's blessing
only God's blessing rests.

May the baptized person always be well!
Congratulations to him and his parents.
May it be under a good star
the whole life of the family!

Dear God, we ask you,
look down mercifully
on this little human child
to whom we are all close.
Make it ready for faith
and protect him at all times.
Be a support for him in the world,
let it feel your love.
Protect it from great pain
And give it a good heart.

If a child is born somewhere,
an angel stands beside it
and day and day and night and night
a lifetime it now guards.

For the day of baptism we wish the best!
May from the high feast
a ray of light that will illuminate the world in which you will live,
the world in which you will live!

Take time to dream
and space to live.
Follow the path
on which your heart carries you.

We bring a child to baptism,
God grant that it may soon speak and walk.
We wish that it will thrive
and not to cry so much during the baptism.

Blossom at your parents' side,
grow up virtuous
and an angel of God guide
guide you on your life's path.

Our wish: Good luck to the little one!
May the baptized child always shine
always shine the bright sun -
and the parents as well!

Our desire is well considered:
For that be always free and open,
what makes life meaningful:
To love, to believe, to hope!

May the person baptized always be well!
Congratulations to him and his parents.
May the whole life of the family
the whole life of the family!

On the day of baptism we offer the wishes,
that we cherish in our thoughts:
On every day and on all paths
may God's rich blessing as Father
the little child and the parents!

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!

Oh dear Lord Jesus Christ,
because you have been a child
give also to this child
the grace and also the blessing of thine.
Oh Jesus, my Lord,
protect this child.

Today you baptize your child,
to find the way to God.
I wish him God's blessing
on all his ways!

Two little feet move away,
two little ears that hear the word
a little creature with eyes that see,
That's creation, it makes us understand.
Two little arms, two hands on them,
that's a miracle what you can see.
We don't know what life will bring you,
but we will help you to succeed.

The baptized person is ready
to receive baptism.
We have gone with him;
May God guide him.
May it be well with him.
The way on this earth,
that it may be an easy one,
We can only pray.
Now he has a name.
Oh, may this child
the sun of grace shine.
We joyfully say Amen.

The Lord be before you,
to show you the right way.

The Lord be beside you,
to embrace you,
to protect you from danger.

The Lord be behind you,
to protect you from the insidiousness of the evil one.

The Lord be under you,
to catch you when you fall.

The Lord be with you,
to comfort you when you are sad.

The Lord be around you,
to defend you
when others attack you.

The Lord be upon you to bless you.
May the good God bless you
today, tomorrow and always.

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.
They come through you, but not from you,
And though they are with you, they are not yours.
You may give them your love, but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may give their bodies a house, but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit,
not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but do not try to make them like you.
For life does not run backwards, nor does it dwell in yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children are sent out as living arrows.
The archer sees the target on the path of infinity,
and He stretches you with His power so that His arrows fly fast and far.
Let your bow be aimed at joy by the hand of the archer;
For as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves the bow that is firm.

We brought our child to be baptized today.
Show him the way on which he can follow you.
Give us the ability to accompany him on this path.
Let this child always be surrounded by the love and affection
of his parents, godparents, grandparents and friends.
Bless and protect our child and all who love him.
