514. There Is a Balm of 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 Don’t ever be discouraged,
For Jesus is your friend;
And if you lack for knowledge,
He’ll ne'er refuse to lend. [Refrain]

3 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]
