Choosing Music for Baptism

As church musicians and singers, we have the privilege of using music to enrich the Sacrament of Baptism. Whether it’s a tiny baby taking their first steps in faith, a child or an adult joining the faith community, the music we choose can create a truly special and welcoming atmosphere.

 

Here are some things to consider when selecting music for a baptism:

 

  • The Individual: Baptisms can be deeply personal experiences. Think about the age and personality of the person being baptized and choose music that resonates with them, or their family if it’s a young child.
  • The Message: Baptism signifies spiritual rebirth and a commitment to faith. Choose songs with lyrics that speak to these themes. Popular choices include hymns about new beginnings, God’s love and acceptance, and the light of faith.
  • The Setting: It’s important to consider where the baptism will take place. While some baptisms are integrated into Mass, others might be a smaller, more intimate ceremony. Choose music that suits the size and formality of the setting.

 

Here are some suggestions for songs and hymns to get you started:

 

Remember, the most important thing is to choose music that creates a welcoming and meaningful atmosphere for this special occasion. The music should reflect the joy of welcoming a new member into the faith community.
