737. 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 Some times 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 not refuse to lend. (Refrain)
