Sounds of Home – Mend

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the August 11th edition of Sounds of Home!

There Is a 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.

Sometimes I feel discouraged and think my work’s in vain,
but then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again. Refrain

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.” Refrain

Don’t ever be discouraged, for Jesus is your friend;
and if you lack for knowledge, he’ll ne’er refuse to lend. Refrain

Text: African American spiritual
Music: African American spiritual; alternative acc. hymnal version

    I really like this one. I had to go look up both of those songs to listen to as well. And thanks for letting me contribute a few weeks ago!
