A little water now on your forehead
to remember we are all mostly water,
that we go with the flow like water,
that we are weak in the face of gravity.
Yes, this is a grave occasion
for we see you reborn in Christ,
reborn in the spirit of forgiving,
reborn in the wisdom of Christ!
In times of difficulty, trouble,
recall these leaping droplets of water,
recall the love of mother and father,
know that love is your faith and force.
