Song Title: Hush Little Baby [Irene]
CHORUS:
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 Lords 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 you prayer
Just cast your cares and please beware of snakes
They come in all shapes and sizes
Tempt you, put scales on your eye lids
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 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 (2x)

CHORUS (2x)

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 challange
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 (2x)

CHORUS

Everything's gonna be alright (3x)
Be alright (2x)

(Yeah)Father I'm stronger I say
Father I'm stronger I say
Father I'm stronger
than when I first believed yeah (2x)

Father I'm stronger I say (3x)
that 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 (2x)

I heard your prayers, just cast your cares
And I'll be there, so don't you fear

CHORUS (2x)

The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight
The Lord's gonna answer your prayer
