Wherever I go today; whomever I meet; whatever I say and do: thank you that I am already seated in your throne room alongside your Son. If I wander astray; if I stumble and fall; if at any point you feel far off: remind me that I will always be welcome home, if only I will return to my great High Priest Jesus who gets me and is acceptable to you
