Theme: Life in Christ

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

3.  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."
