I looked at Abel's sacrifice, still smoking, the flesh, the blood. I cried, I held my eyes I prayed in night and day. And when Father said the time for Sacrifice has come again And Abel led his youngest, his sweetest, his most beloved to the sacrificial fire I did not bring my youngest, my sweetest, for I knew the One Above would not want them. And my brother, beloved Abel said to me "Caine, you did not bring a sacrifice, a gift of the first part of your joy, to burn on the alter of the One Above."
