From Eden to Canaan

by Janis Gaines

Adam was the first man
Eve was his wife
Cain killed his brother Abel
With a pocket knife

Noah built a great big ark
When God sent the flood
Abram sacrificed his son
But Isaac shed no blood

Jacob has a twin brother
And twelve sons of his own
Joseph was one of these
And soon he ruled the throne

Moses was a leader
From Egypt they escaped
Joshua marched around Jericho
Only Rahab escaped
