465. 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 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 sing like angels,
if you cannot preach like Paul,
you can tell the love of Jesus
and say he died for all. (Refrain)
