Blessing For A Newborn

Welcome {name of child},

child of love.

Blessed are you beyond telling,

to be born to parents

who love you and love each other.

Blessed are you beyond telling

that Christ was born just like you,

And gave his life for you!

May you be blessed

to always know that God is ‘for you’

and will never leave or forsake you.

Amen.
