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

~ Af­ri­can-Amer­i­can spir­it­u­al


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.


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.
