(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 worthy
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 welfare life
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 these ends meet
Got an eviction notice
with my lord don't hear my prayers
I never been this scared
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 know who I am

(Verse)
From where we are now?
How do we find our way?
Alone in the darkness, 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 peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
