18. I Saw the Light by Hank Williams

“I Saw the Light” by Hank Williams sung by Josh Turner (click here to listen)

Note: the lyrics of the 2nd and 3rd lines had be ‘tweaked’ just a tiny bit in order to fit into Jesus’ mouth.

I wandered so aimless, life filed with sin
I wouldn’t let my dear Father in
Then my Lord 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 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
I was a fool to wander and stray
Straight is the gate and narrow’s the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
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

This is what faith is. No matter how dark the night, faith is able to see beyond it to the light of a clear blue morning.
