Chorus

Hush little Baby don't you cry,
Daddy's gonna sing you a lulaby
Everything's gonna be allright,
the Lord's gonna answere your prays tonight( x2)

Last night you had a dream
You was the Homecomming queen
Today your 18
Happy birthday Irene
quite school, you had to drop out to raise your little child
( don't you cry, it will be allright)
You got to reach up to touch rock bottom
the powers that keep you downtrodden
daughter of Zion, I heard you prayers
just cast your cares, and please beware of snakes
they come in all shapes in sizes
tempt you, put scales on your eyelids
don't waste your sorrows
they give you strenghth tomarrow
your callvery's about to come
so keep your head up
don't you ever let up
the storm will pass
you'll be ready for the next one

Verse

Hey little girl with the pressures of the world on your shoulders
don't say that its over, i heard your prayers
just cast your cares, and ill be there, so don't you fear( x2)

Chorus(x2)

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

Verse(x2)

Chorus(x6)
