119. 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]
