gift...

Been writing again, this time as a gift for my God-daughter's baptism. Thought I'd post the lyrics...

Dear child of the Father’s creation
formed in love and held in care,
see your family around you stand
to praise the One who gave,

The gift of a child,
offered now in love;
May you know the One who gave,
May you know the One who gave His life,
May you know the One who gave His life for you,
child, for you.

We thank God for life-giving water,
today, the symbol of grace;
and we pray you grow to know His love,
and to praise the One who gave...
