Balm in Gilead


(African American Spiritual)

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 feel discouraged, Your Father is your friend.
And if you lack for knowledge, He’ll not refuse to lend. (Refrain)
