Jennifer Hudson – Hush Child lyrics

[Verse:]
Silent night
Holy night
Poverty on the rise
Wealthy reverend in designer clothes
Homeless children with frostbitten toes
Sleeping in the street
Sleeping in the street

[Verse:]
I ain’t tryna be philosophical
But it’s not logical
Some folks out here freezing, others chilling like it’s tropical

[Verse:]
The indifference is very crazy
Like poverty’s contagious
My hands are dirty but I’m still worried
Step in my shoes and walk in some mercy

[Verse:]
They say this is your punishment for such poor judgment
But you must’ve lost your mind
How you gon feed it when you’re barely eating?
Get ready for the wealth and lie
I ain’t tryna hear it
You make the bed, lay in it
But I’m way too strong for you to break my spirit

[Verse:]
Is it me?
Am I the cause of all my mother’s misery?
This cloud of secrecy on my paternity
Did my very birth destroy my whole family?

[Verse:]
I’m just a sinner, I know who I am
Just a beginner, I’m not yet a man
Send me a signal, I’ll follow your light
Just help me through this silent night

[Chorus:]
Hush child, it’ll be alright
I’ll get you through this silent night
Hush child, it’ll be alright
I’ll get you through this silent night

[Verse:]
This ain’t living
I got a mouth to feed
But I can’t make this in my sleep
Got it be fictional
Just with my luck don’t hear my prayers
I never been this hurt
The silence is too loud for me
Life just ain’t fair

[Verse:]
Is anyone out there?
Does anyone care?
Is anyone listening?
Is anyone there?
Just let me know that I’m a part of your plan
That you’re watching over and over them

[Verse:]
And where we are now?
How do we find our way?
Running from God, you’re scared
With no place to stay

[Chorus: X2]
Hush child, it’ll be alright
I’ll get you through this silent night
Hush child, it’ll be alright
I’ll get you through this silent night

Hush child, it’ll be alright
We’ll do this together

Sleep in heavenly beats
Sleep in heavenly beats
