In sorrow she grieved…

Cain became jealous of his brother Abel,
and rose up against him and killed him.
Cain was banished to the land of Nod,
and Eve grieved the loss of her two sons!
* * * * *
But when Adam knew his wife once more,
she conceived and bore another son.
And kneeling in prayer, with tears she wept,
Her God had replaced Able with Seth!
Every day at the break of dawn, in her arms
she held her son,
repeating the story of forgiveness of sin
and the promise of a Redeemer who would restore
Paradise again!
