Genesis chapter four…

It’s a shame
When brothers kill brother like Abel and Cain
Cain and Abel

Genesis chapter four…

Verse 1:
Adam knew Eve
Soon she conceived and bare Cain
And man from the Lord
Then she bare again
His brother Abel
He was a keeper of sheep
But Cain grew from the ground food to eat
So Cain brought fruit as an offering
As for Abel
He also brought some firstlings
Of his flock
And the fat there of
Respect unto Abel from the Lord up above
But unto Cain he did not look with any favor
Upon his offering Cain grew hot with anger
And the countenance of his face began to fall
Soul starts to waiver
The Lord said Cain why are you hot with anger
And why has your countenance fallen wayward
If you do well
Shall you not be accepted says the Lord
If you don’t do well
Sin lies at the door

Hook:
Cain and Abel
Cain and Abel
Cain and Abel
Cain and Abel

Verse 2:
Cain talked to Abel
Now they’re in the field
He assaulted his brother
Wanted Abel killed
Hit him in the head blood shed Abel’s dead
Cain fled
The words of the Lord said
Where is Abel
Your brother the shepherd
I don’t know he replied
Am I my brother’s keeper
The Lord said
What have you done Cain
From the ground cries the voice
Of your brothers blood stains
Understand
Now you are cursed from the land
Which has opened her mouth
Your brother’s blood at your hands
When the ground is tilled
Her strength shall not yield see
A wanderer and a fugitive you will be
Days to weeks
Months to years
Cain said
My punishment is greater than I can bear
For what I did
You have driven me out
From thy face shall I be hid
To live like a fugitive

(Genesis 4:14-15)
14 And a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore who ever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
