889. 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 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]
