I Saw the Light

Early last week a fellow blogger posted a short quote that immediately brought to mind the Hank Williams Sr. song “I Saw the Light.” As a result, it has been stuck in my head all week. This is fine with me because it is a great song, and so I decided I would share it with you. The lyrics are:

I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn’t let my dear saviour in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light.

I saw the light I saw the light
No more darkness no more night
Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light.

Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light.


I was a fool to wander and a-stray
Straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light.


And here is a video of Hank singing it from YouTube:

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • Ann and Deb, Thanks for the encouraging comments! I have really been surprised at how this one has stuck in my head all week in spite of all the other music I have listened to on my iPod and in the car. It’s a good one, for sure. And Hank was always one of my dad’s favorites. 🙂 Peace, Linda
