There Is a Balm in Gilead

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Sung at the Church of Saint Matthew on 6/17/2018 during Anointing of the Sick. st-matts.org

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.

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!'

3. Don't ever feel discouraged,
    For Jesus is your friend;
    And if you lack for knowledge
    He'll ne'er refuse to lend.
