86. There Is a Balm in Gilead

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. [Refrain]

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.” [Refrain]

3 Don’t ever feel discouraged,
for Jesus is your friend;
and if you lack for knowledge
he’ll not refuse to lend. [Refrain]
