The Ragamuffins

The first stanza was originally shared on

We shall live!
on the white washed bones
of those
who preached otherwise.
The Nazarene has embraced the Ragamuffins,
promised them the spirit
of holiness
and fishing nets
full of men saved
from the pious voices
condemning them of their sins

We shall live!
makes every effort
to break the soul.
But we stand
with blemishes faded.
God's promised covenant washes Ragamuffins
of all their stains.
We are those who begged 
in the streets,
defiled our temples of flesh,
before being bathed
by His blood.
