HANNAH’S CHILD LYRICS

Elkanah tried to reason with your fears
But Elkanah could not stop your tears
He wanted to be like ten sons ’cause you’ve none
I’ve won again this year, Hannah

You’re not worthy Hannah, you’re not even close to me
I, Peninnah, hold the glory

Who do you think you are Hannah down on your knees?
When it’s time to make good, you’ll surely freeze
Down in your heart, you’ll not part with glory
We’ll see about your little promise and desperate plea

You’re not worthy Hannah, you’re not even close to me
I, Peninnah, hold the glory

Instrumental (Hannah’s lament in the temple)

So I see you’re well and the Lord gave you Samuel
But your hell will be your sigh when it’s time to say good-bye
Naturally, you’ll wanna keep your baby
Hannah, will you be brave and give back what the Lord gave?
Hannah, will you be brave?
Hannah, will you be brave?
