Merle Haggard's rendition of Hank William's "I Saw The Light" was released on his The Land Of Many Churches album in 1971. The song was performed alongside The Strangers and The Carter Family. 

"I Saw The Light" was written by the legendary Hank Williams and released in 1948. This song tells the tale of walking through life aimlessly and full of sin, until the narrator lets Jesus in, redeeming him. It's a known fact that Williams had a problem with alcohol, so this song had a much deeper meaning to him.

Though know one can sing this like Hank, Haggard's rendition is phenomenal. Check it out!

I wandered so aimless life filed with sin
I wouldn't let my dear savior 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 the blind man that God gave back his sight
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

I was a fool to wander and stray
Straight is the gate and narrow's the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
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
