BALM IN GILEAD




How lost was my condition
Till Jesus made me whole!
There is but one Physician
Can cure a sin-sick soul.

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


Next door to death he found me,
And snatched me from the grave,
To tell to all around me,
His wondrous power to save.

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


The worst of all diseases
Is light, compared with sin;
On every part it seizes,
But rages most within:

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


'Tis palsy, plague, and fever,
And madness - all combined;
And none but a believer
The least relief can find.

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


From men great skill professing
I thought a cure to gain;
But this proved more distressing,
And added to my pain:

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


Some said that nothing ailed me,
Some gave me up for lost;
Thus every refuge failed me,
And all my hopes were crossed.

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


At length this great Physician,
How matchless is his grace!
Accepted my petition,
And undertook my case:

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


First gave me sight to view him,
For sin my eyes had sealed;
Then bid me look unto him,
I looked, and I was healed.

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


A dying, risen Jesus,
Seen by the eye of faith;
At once from danger frees us,
And saves the soul from death:

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.


Come then to this Physician,
His help he'll freely give;
He makes no hard condition,
'Tis only - look and live.

There's a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole
There's power enough in Jesus
To cure a sin-sick soul.
