Abel and Seth

Here’s to the tale of  honest Abel
The world’s first humble shepherd
Who received the revelation of propitiation
And offered the blood of his herd

By his brother he was cruelly murdered
The first example of evil hating the truth
Yet his soul’s destiny could not be altered
His blood still speaks against the brute

When you see the false fight the true
As it has been through the gory ages
When each generation has grown to rue
What their forebears did to the righteous sages,
Remember the bell first tolled for Cain and Abel

While Abel’s blood was screaming vengeance
Eve got another seed; Seth, by true provenance
In this cosmic trial, God must have a witness
A race to stand for His Word and holiness

Seth’s family took a cue from Abel’s sacrifice
Bearing the shame of the bloody lamb
Seth’s seed are Adam’s surviving genealogy
In God’s law of multiplication, kind breeds kind
Seth was of Adam’s kind, he had a godly mind

One thought on “Abel and Seth
