Writing a Christian Message in a Baby Congratulations Card

Another idea is to use a Bible verse to communicate wisdom or say what you want in an elegant way. Below are many Bible verses that can accompany your Christian message. Let your words be a blessing to the parents of a child who God loves.

Religious Poems for New Parents
He Gave His Son
Big, small, and the unborn
The Lord loves everyone
He's a Father to all of us
Because He gave His Son
When You First Smiled
Ask God to grant you wisdom
Which He promises to give
He's been parenting a while
And He knows how to forgive
As Jesus knows you well
You'll get to know your child
You'll know the same feeling
He had when you first smiled
