Track Name: There is a Balm in Gilead
There is a balm in Gilead
It comes like wisdom
but speaks like children
It's a sight to the blind
and a strength to my weakness
It's something for soul, body, mind

There is a balm in Gilead
It's a rest for the weary
a song to the sore
it's like dew to my dryness
that fills me with joy
when I had none

There is a balm in Gilead
it's the spring in the desert
for the withered of soul
it's a strength and a power that keeps
making you whole
it's the question you're asking and the
answers you need
it's the face you've been seeking the one,
the one you've been begging to see

There is a balm in Gilead
it's the trash and the remnants
of all my train wrecks
coming together and
still heading out west
like a blank paycheck that's
paying off the back rent
taking me further to
whatever's to happen next

There is a balm in Gilead
it's the light of the dawn
it's the scales without measure
it's the bread of a baker
and the blood of a maker
it's the water I long for and the
story on fire
it's the breath and the magic
and the something to die for
it's the laying down of the shepherd at night

There is a balm in Gilead
There is a balm in Gilead
There is a balm in Gilead
