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 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 for tomorrow
Your Calvary's about to come
So keep your head up, don't you ever let up
This storm will pass, you 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

I said, 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

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 tonight

Irene, I carried you when you was too 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 build 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 every day
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 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

I said, 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

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby
Everything's gonna be alright
The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

Daddy's gonna sing you a lullaby
Everything's gonna be alright
The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight

Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright, be alright, be alright

Father I'm stronger I said

Father I'm stronger than when I first believed, yeah
