I Saw The Light

Words and music: Hank Williams in 1948. 


6  6    6   -6  7    8  
I wan-dered so aim-less

 6     6     -6   7
Life filled with sin

-8   7  -6   7  
I would-n't let

 7  -8   7  -6   6
my dear Sav-ior in;

  6   6 -6    7   
Then Je-sus came

  8  8    6   6  6  -6    7
like a strang-er in the night,

   9   -10 9  8 7  
Praise the L-or-d!

8  8  -8    7
I saw the light.

chorus

8  8  -8   8 -8 7  
I saw the li-gh-t,

8  8  -8   8 -8 7
I saw the li-gh-t,

-8   7  -6   7    7   
No more in dark-ness,

-8   7  -6  7 -6 6
no more in ni-gh-t.

 6   6   6  -6  7  7   
And now I'm so hap-py,

 7  8   8  -8  8 -8 7
no sor-row in si-gh-t,

  9    -10 9  8 7  8  8  -8    7
Praise the L-or-d! I saw the light.

verse 2

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.

verse 3

I was a fool to wander and 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.
