“Go up to Gilead and obtain balm.” | Jeremiah 46:11

African-American spiritual
Arr. Philip Moyer

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

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,”
And say, “He died for all!”

There is a balm in Gilead,
To make the wounded whole,
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal, to heal your soul.
