Brother's Keeper

Story Behind The Song

The song is Biblically based on the conversation God had with Cain after he killed his brother. God asked him "Where is his Brother" to which Cain replied "Am I my brother's keeper", God told him that his Brother's blood cries out to him. This song frames the deaths of so many young people in the community crying out for change. The conversation that God will charge us with, indeed being our Brother's keeper. Scripture teaches that we can not love God whom we have not seen and hate our brothers and sisters who we see on a daily basis. The song's inescapability from the reality of today whether racial indifference or street violence, we can not ignore the blood of the slain, it calls out to us for change.

Where is your Brother
Where is your Sister
I hear their Blood crying for me
You are your brother's keeper,
You have to love him, if you love Me

Everyday we see a young life taken away,
Cried too many tears, we got to stop living this way.
All their hopes and dreams are now blood stains.
If we not living for the Lord, we dying in vain
Living in a time, the people who are called by your name,
Would humble themselves, pray and seek Your Face

Where is your Brother
Where is your Sister
I hear their Blood crying for me
You are your brother's keeper,
You have to love him, if you love Me

You can hear the tears falling down through the rain
Hating me for being different, when we really the same
Trying to heal the wounds that run so so so deep,
Loving our neighbor should come easily, the hard part is loving on your enemies
How can we say... that we both really love the Lord,
We must love our brother on a daily accord
Claiming all lives matter by changing one word.
It's only true if mine matters the same as yours

I hear them crying for Me, Crying for Me, Crying for Me
