Have You Seen the Light?

Yesterday was Round Up Sunday at my church. We weren’t roundin’ up doggies, we were roundin’ up volunteers for the various ministries in the church. In keeping with the country western theme, many in the congregation were dressed in their western attire and we sang some great old-time songs.

One of my favorites that we sang was I Saw the Light by Hank Williams Sr. This song reminds me of when I was a kid because Hank Williams was always one of my dad’s favorites, along with Tennessee Ernie Ford, Ernest Tubb, and Johnny Cash, and we heard them all a lot growing up.

Although it was great to sing this song as a church yesterday, I couldn’t help but hear the original Hank Williams version in my head. I found this awesome “video” of it on YouTube and decided I wanted to share it with you all for Music Monday.

As a bonus, I found this Hank Williams Sr. version of I’ll Fly Away, which was our closing song for our Round Up Sunday service. The first time I heard this song was at my husband’s Grandma Ruth’s memorial service, and I have loved it ever since.
