Rather than the company of kings or princes

I will take this association with the damned
I will take this love between us
rather than the company of kings or princes

I will stand with these broken
I will stand with these bleeding yet
magnificently open people
rather than the very angels at the right hand of God

We break every rule
We know we are incapable of anything else
lost when left to our own devices
And here we are
Children of the Father that pursues

The Father that waits
that watches
that looks far into the distance

The Father that loves

Even the damned
