(Verse1)
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 tonight(x2)


last night you dreamed you was the Homecomeing 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
.....tomorrow

Your Calvary is 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

(Chorus)
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(x2)
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 tonight(x2)
(2nd time go to Bridge)
(3rd time go to Ending)

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 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
(back to chorus)

(bridge)
Everything's gonna be alright(x3)
Be alright(x2)

Father I'm stronger I say(x2)
father I'm stronger than when I first believed YEAH(x2 ALL)
(back to chorus)

(Ending)
The Lord's gonna answer your prayer tonight
The Lord's gonna answer you prayer....
