Printables hymns for baptism are perfect for masses and church services with baptisms as well as custom personalized baptism wall art.
You already know that I’m a little obsessed with all things sheet music and that I love the aesthetic of vintage sheet music. On occasion, I’ve created my own vintage sheet music for various DIY projects. But there’s nothing quite like using genuine sheet music.
The first vintage hymns sheet music printables I created have been far more successful than I ever imagined. So I’m slowly creating additional sets of vintage hymns for specific occasions. Last month I released Christmas hymns. Now I’m releasing printable hymns for baptism. This collection includes 18 hymns from three different hymn books, ideal for masses and church services as well as custom wall art.
Over the next year, I’ll be sharing a number of other collections including, but not limited to, Lent and Easter, Mother’s Day, and the 4th of July. If there’s anything you’d like to see here, please let me know.
How to use free printable vintage hymns for baptism
- Masses and church services with baptisms. It’s fitting to have one or two hymns pertaining to baptism in a service or mass that includes a baptism. You may simply be looking for one of these hymn titles or the vintage aesthetic may appeal to you. Printable vintage hymns work well for both the general congregation as well as the choir.
- Special baptism services. Many families opt to have a special service or ceremony for a child’s baptism outside of a regularly scheduled mass or service. Printable hymns are perfect for this type of service as well. I love the idea of creating a special book for the service that includes the music.
- Custom wall art. There are numerous ways you can use printable hymns for baptism to create one-of-a-kind wall art. You may want to design an art piece for your own child’s baptism, or you may be creating a gift as a godparent or close family member or friend. The hymns make beautiful wall art on all their own. Simply print and frame them for easy gift giving. You can also add your own wording and images to them, including Bible verses and quotes. I share just a few examples below for custom wall art baptism pieces.

Baptism hymns 8×10 format
I created 8×10 versions of four of the vintage hymns about baptism available in this post: ‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus, Willing Am I, Leaving All I Follow to Jesus, and My Desire.
I know that many people are looking for hymns to print as-is for gifts and hymns to download and then customize for gifts. Having sheet music already in 8×10 format makes this process quick and easy. If you’d like a hymn not available in 8×10 format and you don’t know how to format it yourself, please let me know. I’m happy to create additional 8×10 formats.
I’ve created 8×10 versions with and without white borders. Depending on the type of frame you choose and the specific project you have in mind, you may prefer one format over the other.

Custom baptism wall art examples
Baptism wall art is very popular. You’ll have no problem finding numerous examples on Etsy to provide inspiration for your own wall art. I’ve created a few examples of my own to get you started.
One reason people order personalized baptism wall art is to have a piece that includes a child’s name and baptism date. I’ve created a very simple version with a name, birth date, and baptism date and a more detailed version with a floral image, name, baptism date, and the text “you are a child of God.”
There is a wealth of beautiful Bible verses pertaining to baptism that work well for baptism wall art. One of my favorite verses is the one I’ve featured above from Galatians 3:26-27: “So in Christ Jesus, you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ.”
There are also a number of nice quotes about baptism that are great for custom baptism wall art. One of my favorite baptism quotes is the quote featured above from Robert D. Hales: “When we were baptized, we took it upon us not only the name of Christ, but also the law of obedience.”

To further help you design personalized baptism wall art, I’ve also put together resources with baptism Bible verses and baptism quotes.

Tips for printing vintage hymns for baptism
When you use printable hymns for baptism to create custom wall art, I highly recommend printing your pieces on Finestra Art paper, which is what I used to print the above vintage dictionary pages. The acid-free, matte surface dries ink immediately, creating vibrant, crisp images. Regular printer paper, card stock, and presentation paper do work, but they don’t produce results that look as good. It’s worth spending a little more to create wall art with a professional finish, especially when you’re making a gift for a loved one
To create custom wall art, if you don’t use my 8×10 versions, you’ll have to format or crop the sheet music to fit the frame of your choice. Once you’ve formatted or cropped the music to your desired size, make sure to select the corresponding paper size both on the printer itself when you load the paper and on the printer menu when you print your new art. Otherwise, your music may not print correctly.
