There Is A Balm In Gilead

by William L. Dawson

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

Sometimes I feel discouraged
And think my work’s in vain
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again

There is a balm …

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”

There is a balm …

from Wikipedia:

Balm of Gilead was a rare perfume used medicinally, that was mentioned in the Bible, and named for the region of Gilead where it was produced. The expression stems from William Tyndale’s language in the King James Bible of 1611, and has come to signify a universal cure in figurative speech.
