I have reached a milestone. I wrote song #1700. The words for song #1 were written in the spring of 1972, but the melody was not finalized until the next fall. (Took a long time to get one down in those days.)
Many times when I’ve been doing these sort of milestone efforts I’ve hoped for something that would be well above the average. This time it was.
I’ve been preaching on the heart, so it’s not surprising that the song would be about the presence of the Holy Spirit inside us. Everything went just sort of average until I got to the last line. Then I wrote down something that even surprised me, and I was the one who wrote it. At first I thought, “That can’t be right”, then I remembered scriptures like Galatians 2:20 and Romans 8:10 which say exactly what the song says. It’s called “His Address”.
It is His Spirit that lives in me
The foretaste of all things
The Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ
Now inside my heart resides
This means that God is not
So far away as it seems
It means that Jesus knows where to find me
For His address is me
