BALM OF GILEAD




Why droops my soul with grief oppressed?
Whence these wild tumults in my breast?
Is there no balm to heal my wound?
No kind physician to be found?


Yes, in the gospel's faithful lines,
Jehovah's boundless mercy shines;
There drest in love the Saviour stands,
With pitying heart, and wooing hands!


Raise to the cross thy weeping eyes ;
Behold the prince of glory dies;
He dies, extended on the tree,
Thence shed a sovereign balm for me.


Dear Saviour, at thy feet I lie,
Here to receive a cure or die!
But grace forbids that painful fearó
O boundless grace! it triumphs here!


Dear Lord, extract the poisoned dart,
Bind up and heal my broken heart;
With blooming health my face adorn,
And change my gloomy night to morn.


Expand, my soul! with holy joy;
Hosannas be thy blest employ;
Salvation thy eternal theme,
And swell the song with Jesus' name.

Why droops my soul with grief oppressed?
Why these wild tumults in my breast?
Is there no balm to heal my wound?
No kind physician to be found?


Raise to the cross thy tearful eyes ;
Behold the Prince of glory dies;
He dies, extended on the tree,
And shed a sovereign balm for me.


Dear Saviour, at thy feet I lie,
Here to receive a cure or die!
But grace forbids that painful fearó
Infinite grace, which triumphs here!


Dear Saviour, at thy feet I lie,
Here to receive a cure or die!
But grace forbids that painful fearó
Almighty grace, which triumphs here!


Thou wilt withdraw the poisoned dart,
Bind up and heal the wounded heart;
With blooming health my face adorn,
And change the gloomy night to morn.


Exult, my soul! with holy joy;
Hosannas be thy blest employ;
Salvation thine eternal theme,
And swell the song with Jesus' name.
