Crying for the World

Irish lullaby, Written by: Unknown

Oh, my child, you cry so many tears,
Seems like you've been crying for the world;
Oh, my child, your world so full of fears,
Seems like you've been crying for the world.

I to bare you, I to raise you,
Father, give me strength to do it right;
I to adore you, be a refuge for you,
Father give me strength to do it right.

Hush, my child and lay you down to sleep,
Seems like you've been crying for the world;
Hush, my child your tears that burn so deep,
Seems like you've been crying for the world.

I will protect you, guard you and guide you,
Father give me strength to do it right;
I will love you, more than I have to,
Father give me strength to do it right.

Oh, my child, I only wish I could,
Suffer all the trials in your place;
Oh, my child, you know I truly would,
Take on all the evils you will face.

I will protect you, guard you and guide you,
Father give me strength to do it right;
I will love you, more than I have to,
Father give me strength.
