Lyrics

There Is A Balm In Gilead

Lyrics: Traditional based on Jeremiah 8:22
Additional Lyrics by Peter Link & Clara M. Brooks
Arranged by Peter Link and Julia Wade
Background Vocals Written, Arranged and Produced by John Danny Madden

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

They came in search of healing
They came in such despair
With lame and halt and withered
With more than life could bear

He healed the leper and the sinner
And he chased the clouds away
He healed the deaf the dumb the blind
Christ’s with us here today

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

The heav’nly touch of spirit
Has wondrous healing power
To banish your diseases
Be healed this very hour

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

He raised the dead he freed us
He holds us in his care
He is the balm of Gilead
Yet Christ is everywhere

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