Balm in Gilead
- Traditional / Anna Fritz

There is a balm in Gilead
to make the wounded whole.
There is a balm in Gilead
to heal our broken souls.

If you can see the damage,
the injustice and the pain,
you must speak with all your courage
‘til we find harmony again.


Sometimes I feel discouraged,
as if my work is all in vain
but the spirit of the people
revives my soul again.
