Child of blessing, child of promise,
love's creation, love indeed!
Fresh from God, refresh our spirits,
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,
blessing you in Jesus' 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.
