AVP for Dade's Baptism

Dade's Ninong K spent a whole night to come up with this special AVP, which we played during the baptismal reception. thank you so much, Ninong K! it's so beautiful!

I chose the song "A Mother's Prayer" by Rachel Aldous, which has the exact same thoughts and wishes I have for my song. This song never fails to touch me whenever I hear it being played.

Below is the video followed by the words of the song.

A Mother's Prayer (Hannah's Song)
by Rachel Aldous
Verse:
My sweet baby on loan from above
no better treasure could I more love
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say:
Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him all of your days
May He lead you and guide you in all of your ways
May He bless your future with friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast
Verse:
I stare in wonder at your tiny frame
Just to think God knows you by name
He knows every hair on your head
He knows your thoughts before they are said
Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him all of your days
May He lead you and guide you in all of your ways
May He bless your future with friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast
Prayer:
May God grant you peace in the midst of a storm
May God give you strength even when you’re forlorn
May you answer the door when Jesus comes knocking
May wisdom guide when your mouth is talkin’
May discretion protect you and keep you pure
May you never stumble or fall for a lure
May your heart remain humble to the very end
May uprightness and truth be what you defend
May the world not ensnare or change who you are
May the light that's within you shine like the stars
May angels surround you body, spirit, mind
May favor and peace be yours to find
May rejection and pain never reach you
May your spirit grow bold for what you’re called to
Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him all of your days
May He lead you and guide you in all of your ways
May He bless your future with friendships that last
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast
Singing:
As you rest in God’s care
I will rest too Knowing that Jesus
is watching over you
Amen

I love you, Dade! You are Mommy's most wonderful blessing received!
