Lyrics

Refrain

There is a balm in Gilead

to make the wounded whole,

there is a balm in Gilead

to heal the sin-sick soul.

1.

Sometimes I feel discouraged,

And think my work’s in vain,

But then the Holy Spirit

Revives my soul again.

2.

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.”

3.

Don’t ever feel discouraged,

For Jesus is your friend;

And if you lack for knowledge,

He'll ne’er refuse to lend.
