Cain was the firstborn
Abel came later.
Cain was forlorn
Because Abel was greater.
Abel was blessed
Because his heart was pure.
He gave his best;
God requires no more.
Cain’s offering was despised
For he gave not from his heart.
God was not at all surprised
That Cain’s offering fell short.
Yet instead of making it right
Cain chose to worsen his plight.
He slew his only brother;
The evidence to smother!
But God heard the cry of Abel’s blood
Wailing from the grave.
And though Cain knew his name was mud
He tried not his name to save.
When God turned him loose from the garden
Cain could no longer show his face.
Cursed! His life an unbearable burden
Living as a fugitive in shame and disgrace.
So, one was slain and the other his slayer.
That’s the First Children’s shocking fame.
Adam and Eve must’ve felt like a failure
Ah yes! They are the ones to blame.
