The Cross & the Jukebox: Hank Williams Sr.’s “I Saw the Light”

In this relaunch of “The Cross & the Jukebox,” I start with one of the most recognizable songs in country music: “I Saw the Light” by Hank Williams Sr. This song is the prayer of a backslider, something that we can all understand at some point in our lives. 

Join me each week as I think about some of my favorite songs. I hope you’ll subscribe and leave a review or a comment.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
