This compilation represents the other side of the coin from Hank Williams's heartbroken laments and barroom ballads. I SAW THE LIGHT focuses on Hank's spiritual side, which was a major element of his work. No matter what kind of situation Williams found himself in, in art or life, his faith in Jesus was never far from his mind. Many of the hymn-like tunes here came about when Hank found himself painted into an emotional corner, with no one to turn to except God. At those moments, he wrote some of the most poignant spiritual songs ever composed.
The title cut is the best example, as its narrator details his worldly tribulations in detail before describing his eventual salvation. It's no wonder that the song eventually became a gospel staple on a par with anything else in the hymn book. I SAW THE LIGHT is country gospel at its most vital. To ignore this side of his work is to deny oneself a complete picture of Wiliams's songwriting genius.
