Hank Williams – I Saw The Light lyrics
Words and music by hank williams sr.

I [g] wandered so aimless life filed 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.

Chorus
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.

Chorus

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

Chorus

    My thoughts and explanation of this song. As Hank Williams was pretty steeped in Christianity. His knowledge wasn't allowing him to realize the benefits of its reality.

The rest will be received once one has passed through the Pearly Gates into heaven. To continue worshiping, servicing, and fellow shipping with God in his glory. By over coming the so called blessing Satan bestows upon those that, look for worldly pleasures. Not realizing that the pleasures they will be desiring are a reality in heaven. Unable to endure any discomfort that they are afforded by having to wait on blessings that are merely instaneous
