balm in Gilead …

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

Some times I feel discouraged,
And think my work’s in vain,
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again.

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.

Mahalia JacksonPaul RobesonKathleen Battle & Jessye Norman sing.

Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician here?
Why then has the health of my poor people not been restored?
Jeremiah 8:22

Daniel Sulmasy‘s book … A Balm for Gilead.
