Welcome Emily Rose

At the very start,

It is a joy to welcome you

To our world and to our heart.


These are things we wish for you

As you live and grow in love,

May you know many blessings

From Heaven up above.


We wish for you quiet times

With your family and friends,

May you know a happiness

And love that never ends.


May you know your Mummy’s love

And the comfort of her arms,

As she seeks to hold you

And protect you from all harms.


A Daddy to take pride in you

And hear you when you call,

To lift you up so tenderly

And hold you lest you fall.


We wish for you story books,

Laughter and teddy bears,

A world of peace and comfort

A world without great cares.


We wish you love and happiness

A comfy cosy bed,

A soft and downy pillow

Where you can lay your head.


Flowers on your pathway

A gentle summer breeze,

Butterflies in summer time

May you know all of these.


May the tides of life carry you gently

Whichever the path you take,

May the sun shine for you

And storms leave you safe in their wake.


May diamonds fill your night sky

And for you birds sing their song,

May you play in safety

And angels watch you all day long.
