Sorry, that was a bit flippant of me. You could try Cross Rhythms. Don't know if they actually have any Bible quotes on there, but if you have a wander around the ite, no doubt there'll be some links.

This is what I read at my dnieces' christenings:

Mark 10:13-16
13 People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them.
14 But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.
15 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.’
16 And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.

14.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful.
I know that full well.
15. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16. your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before any of them came to be
