Using words from Methodist baptism as extra

Occasionally, I have used some words that are in the Methodist baptism service, at the part which addresses the child:-

“…for you Jesus Christ came into the world, for you he lived and showed God’s love; for you he suffered death on the Cross; for you he triumphed over death rising to newness of life; for you he prays at God’s right hand: all this for you, before you could know anything of it. In your baptism the word of Scripture is fulfilled: we love because God first loved us.”
