Balm in Gilead

A traditional black American spiritual
Rise Up Singing chapter: Spirituals, p.208

Chorus: D - - A / D - BmA D
There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul

Verses: D EmA D A / D EmA F#m G
Sometimes I feel discouraged and I think my work's in vain
But then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again

If you can preach like Peter, if you can pray like Paul
Go home and tell your neighbor, "He died to save us all"
