379. 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 sin-sick soul.

1 Some times 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 ne'er refuse to lend. [Refrain]
