What a wonderful blessing
Sent from Heaven above,
A baby to cherish
Filling your heart with love.
May your sweet little one
Bring your life much pleasure,
Brightening your world
A tiny bundle to hold and treasure.
The wonder of babies
So precious and sweet
Created by God,
Tiny hands and feet.
Such a bundle of joy
For all to adore,
Who in this world
Could ever ask for more!

A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above
A handful of happiness, a heart full of love.
The mystery of life, so sacred and sweet
The giver of joy so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless, so lovable, too
The world’s sweetest miracle, baby, is you.

Babies are angels that fly to the earth, their wings disappear at the time of their birth. One look in their eyes and we are never the same, they are part of us now and that part has a name. That part is your heart and a bond that will not sever, our babies are angels, we love them forever!

May you touch dragonflies and stars,
dance with fairies and talk to the moon.
May you grow up with
love and gracious hearts
and people who care.
Welcome to the world
It’s been waiting for you!

How to use Christian baby congratulations messages
When someone you know has a new baby, you may not be able to see them in person right away. These messages, poems, and verses are a great way to congratulate the new parents and share in their joy. Here are some ways you can share them with the mom and dad.
Connect on social media
Nowadays, most birth announcements are done through social media instead of through the mail. If you find out a friend or family member had a baby, social media is a great way to connect with them. When you see a sweet newborn face pop up on your newsfeed, you are likely reminded of God’s wonderful promises. Leaving one of these Christian sayings or Bible verses in a comment will show your heartfelt congratulations.
Send them a text message
A text message is considered one of the more impersonal means of communication. But it’s also one of the most convenient methods for a new parent. During the newborn phase, the parents may not have much time to chat on the phone. Sending them a quick text to let them know you’re praying for them and thinking of them means a lot.
Write a card
All of these messages and sayings are perfect for a greeting card. Cards are certainly more personal than other means of communication. It may seem like a simple gesture, but cards are usually cherished and kept for many years. If you have the time, put a congratulations message in a greeting card and send it in the new parents.
When God blesses someone in your life with a new baby, it’s sometimes difficult to know what to say. If you’re sending a message or writing a card of congratulations, you may want to include a Christian message. A faith based message will encourage the new parents during a wonderful, and often challenging, time.
Religious congratulations quotes, Christian baby poems, and Bible verses are all great ways to rejoice with the new parents. We hope these Christian baby congratulations messages help to inspire you and point you in the right direction.
