Hank Williams I SAW THE LIGHT Lyrics

Last updated: 05/21/2013 06:44:43 PM

I [G] wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I [C] wouldn't let my dear saviour [G] in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord [D7] I saw the [G] light.

I saw the light I saw the light
[C] No more darkness no more [G] night
Now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord [D7] I saw the [G] 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.

I saw the light | Reviewer: May A. | 5/21/13

Trials . Sufferings . Arguing with the Word of God. Prayed that I will not obey but I felt no peace . Analyzed the Word . Questioning the Word. Finally Faith saved me. March 31 around 2 am I saw the light. God is real.His Word is alive . The Bible is alive. It's the book of life. All God wants is to surrender and give our burdens to him and He will lift you up. He will set you free . That is the reason why we live on earth to worship God and live for him . He is the way , the truth , and the life . Acknowledge him in all your ways and he will make our path straight. He bless us with peace and joy. Holy spirit is a gift from God . Humans are weak we need to hold on to the Word and pray constantly so we won't fall.

This is the first time I've heard about this song and all I did was read the lyrics! I've been looking for songs to sing in church, and I think I've got the one. When I read the lyrics I really felt as though the Father was pulsing all through my heart. The best is, because I know that that is true. Today God has been revealed through these ever perfect words. My question for all of you is;

Can you see the light?

I wish | Reviewer: gigi | 11/1/12

i really wish everyone could read this. it not actually a song for christians. it's meant for other religions to understand what it's LIKE for us christians to come to god. For us it's just a well written, nice, beautiful song (because we already know what it's like to feel gods pressence) but to others this song might change their lives, and if they really understand the lyrics then they can start the understand what being a christian is like and how its the most powerful, amazing feeling you can have when you see the light. :)

Love this song | Reviewer: Philllip Shay | 10/17/12

This song is simple yet profound, really beautiful! I thought church and religion was a real bore until I met Jesus! What an experience that was! Jesus transcends church and religion. Every knee will bow to Him and confess that He is LORD.
Oh how wonderful it was when I met my master, saviour and King! I saw the light, felt his loving embrace, peace and joy!! It was the 29th of July 1979, at 10:00 pm one Sunday night when Jesus filled me with His Spirit! See St. John 7:37 - 39, Acts 1:8, 10:44 - 47, 2: 38 -39. This song reflects my experience, I saw the light and I have been walking in it. I have more than dogma, I have songs and a wonderful Saviour. Pr-a-I-s-e the LORD I saw the light.

indeed i saw the light | Reviewer: james longmire | 6/1/12

i love this song it really sums up what its like to find Jesus and friend he is God he is not a prophet. he is God and he said so. he never said he was a prophet he called himself the son of God and God either you believe him to be God or a liar, he is the way the truth and the light. the light is exactly what he is to me. this song really does put into words the meaning of true salvation. we all know how hank died but we all know what its like to be lost in sin and bound but praise the lord i saw the light. beautiful song mabee some dont know but its in the old hymnals. i loved singing it at church. if you havent saw the the light you just need to pray to God and accept his son as lord of your admit your a sinner in need of forgiveness then you should read james john romans to learn about this salvation and how to serve God. find a bible believing church to fellowship in learn His laws n commandments ask him to help you obey them if u mess up dont give up turn to him in those times n pray pray pray n read!

Hank really nailed it with this one | Reviewer: Terry Jones | 9/17/08

Simply put, I Saw the Light is one of the best, most enduring songs ever written. Simple, up-beat, and memorable, who hasn't found themselves singing it at one time or another? Possibly the best part is that if you cover it with a band you'll have every single person in the audience singing along with you! Hank really nailed it with this one.

hank williams | Reviewer: sonja | 7/6/08

He was a great country singer and all his songs are great hits . They are listened by many still , all the emotion in his songs , he told the story of his life in music . This man went through alot in his life and to come up with a song like this . It has touched many young and old , too bad his life ended the way it did .

God | Reviewer: Matt | 8/20/04

I believe this song should be listened by those who do not believe, those people will soon figure out that there is a god and he is everywhere. Man, I just seems like yesterday that i was struggling in life because i didnt know there was a god, but then i went to church everyday for a week and now i know there is a god. Listening to this song made me believe. Today i just saw the light.
