Performer: Paul Robeson.
Lyrics: Traditional.
Tune: Traditional.


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 can’t pray like Peter, if you can’t pray like Paul,
Go home and tell your neighbor, “He died to save us all.”

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