I Saw the Light

  G
I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin;
  C                            G
I wouldn’t ask my dear saviour in.
   
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night;
                 D7         G
Praise the Lord, I saw the light!


Chorus:
  G
I saw the light, I saw the light.
  C                       G
No more darkness; no more night.
   
Now I’m so happy no sorrow in sight.
                 D7        G
Praise the Lord, I saw the light!


Just like a blind man I wandered alone,
Worries and fears I claimed for my own.
Then like the blind man that Jesus gave back his sight;
Praise the Lord, I saw the light!


I was a fool to wander astray,
For straight is the gate and narrow is the way.
Now I have traded the wrong for the right;
Praise the Lord, I saw the light!
