All creation blesses you, O Lord. Exiles offer you
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
You are forever generous
and there are no boundaries to your love.

Help us to remain firm in you.

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