I Saw the Light Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I wandered so aimless life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear Saviour in
Then Jesus 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 a blind man
That God gave back his sight

Praise the Lord I saw the light
I saw the light

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
I saw the light
