Irene

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer

 

Last night I had a dream you was the homecoming queen

Today you're 18, happy birthday Irene

Quit school you had to drop out to raise your little child

Doesn't seem to be anyone around

You've got to reach up to touch rock bottom

The powers that be keep you downtrodden

Daughter of Zion, I heard your prayer

Just cast your cares and please beware of snakes

They come in all shapes and sizes

Tempt you, put scales on your eyelids

Don't waste your sorrows

They'll give you strength tomorrow... tomorrow

Your Calvary's about to come so

Keep your head up, don't you ever let up

This storm will pass you'll be ready for the next one

 

Hey little girl with the pressures of the world on your shoulders

Don't say that it's over

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares

And I'll be there so don't you fear

And I'll be there so don't you fear

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer

 

Irene, I carried you when you was to weak to walk

I took to you when you gave your heart to God

Faithful and true, that's what I'll always be to you

Believe in you, believe in Me and these mountains have to move

You have dreams and aspirations

I knew you before Creation

Your foundation's solid

I will give you a palace, restore your soul

You'll be up for any challenge

Many storms are on the way; better sharpen your faith

Count the cost, take up your Cross

And wear it everyday

Rest in me and I will give you strength

Blessed is she, Irene, who seeks my face

 

Hey little girl with the pressures of the world on you shoulders

Don't say that it's over

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares

And I'll be there, so don't you fear

And I'll be there, so don't you fear

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer

 

Everything's gonna be alright

Everything's gonna be alright

Everything's gonna be alright

Be alright...

Be alright...

 

(Yeah) Father I'm stronger I say

Father, I'm stronger, I say

Father, I'm stronger

Than when I first believed, yeah

(Yeah) Father I'm stronger I say

Father, I'm stronger, I say

Father, I'm stronger

Than when I first believed, yeah

 

I say hey little girl with the pressures of the world on her shoulders

Don't say that it's over

I say hey little girl with the pressures of the world on her shoulders

Don't say that it's over

 

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares

And I'll be there, so don't you fear

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

 

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby

Everything's gonna be alright

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer

 

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer...
