There Is A Balm In Gilead

There is a balm in Gilead,
to make the wounded whole,
there is a balm in Gilead,
to heal the sinsick soul.

Sometimes I feel discouraged,
and think my work's in vain,
but then the Holy Spirit
revives my soul again. (Refrain)

If you cannot preach like Peter,
if you cannot pray like Paul,
you can tell the love of Jesus,
and say, "He died for all." (Refrain)

Don’t ever feel discouraged,
for Jesus is your friend;
And if you lack for knowledge,
He’ll never refuse to lend. (Refrain)
