Song Description

This traditional song can be enjoyed at any time of year, but it is especially good to listen to during the holidays of Christmas and New Year's.

Story Behind the Song

I was so taken with Nina Simone's version of the song that I just had to record my own version.


There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

If you can pray like Peter
If you can preach like Paul
Go home and tell your loved ones
He died to save us all
