worship. Pilgrims hallow your name. Saints adore you. Humanity
offers its praise. And we your servants lift our hearts and

you are almighty and greater than anything we can
and yet you are a friend and closer to us than every breath

May walking together strengthen our pilgrimage,
trusting in Christ's name, and by the power of the Spirit.
