A Psalm For The Wounded Heart

There Is A Balm in Gilead

The Concordia Choir, (Moorhead, MN) 2008, Dr. René Clausen, Conductor.

 

(1)   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.
There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul.
 
(2)   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.
There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul.
This is one of my favorite old hymns and often lifts my spirit when there appears a cloud – shadow dimming the light within my soul. A reminder my Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, never leaves me – never forsakes me. Tho I can no longer preach from a pulpit or teach in front of a class.  I can’t sing like the angels, but I can use the pen to write of the Saviors healing love.       -g.w
This hymn appeared in the 1889 Methodist Hymnal with a different tune, but the tune in our present hymnal, as with most other publications, is the traditional tune.
