Child of Blessing, Child of Promise

Submitted By: JenButler

Child of Blessing, Child of promise,
baptized with the spirit's sign.
With this water God has sealed you
unto love and grace divine.

Child of love, our loves expression,
Love's creation, loved indeed!
Fresh from God refresh our spirit,
into joy and laughter lead.

Child of joy, our dearest treasure,
God's you are, from God you came.
Back to God we humbly give you;
live as one who bears Christ's name.

Child of God your loving parent,
learn to know whose child you are.
Grow to laugh and sing and worship,
trust and love God more than all.
