Scripture Verses:

Is there no balm in Gilead?
Is there no physician there?
Why then is there no healing
for the wound of my people?
Jeremiah 8:22(NIV)

Go up to Gilead and get balm,
O Virgin Daughter of Egypt.
But you multiply remedies in vain;
there is no healing for you.
Jeremiah 46:11(NIV)


There Is A Balm In Gilead

Chorus:

There is a balm in Gilead


To make the wounded whole;


There is a balm in Gilead


To heal the sin sick soul.





Stanza 1:

Some times I feel discouraged,


And think my work’s in vain,


But then the Holy Spirit


Revives my soul again.





Chorus



Stanza 2:

If you can’t preach like Peter,


If you can’t pray like Paul,


Just tell the love of Jesus,


And say He died for all.



Chorus
