74. 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 can't preach like Peter,
if you can't pray like Paul,
just tell the love of Jesus,
and say He died for all. [Refrain]
