"Irene" Lyrics [edit]
by TobyMac | from the album Discover: tobyMac EP
 

Hush little baby baby donít you cry
Daddyís gonna sing you a lullaby
Everythingís gonna be alright
The Lordís gonna answer your prayer tonight
Hush little baby donít you cry
Daddyís gonna sing you a lullaby
Everythingís gonna be alright
The Lordís gonna answer your prayer

Last night I had a dream you was the homecoming queen
Today youíre 18, happy birthday Irene
Quit school you had to drop out to raise your little child
Doesnít 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
Donít waste your sorrows
Theyíll give you strength ... tomorrow
Your Calvaryís about to come so
Keep your head up, donít 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
Donít say that itís over
I heard your prayers, just cast your cares
And Iíll be there so donít you fear

CHORUS

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, thatís what Iíll 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 foundationís solid
I will give you a palace, restore your soul
Youíll 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

CHORUS

Father Iím stronger than when I first believed
