Josh Turner's "I Saw the Light" performance at the Grand Ole Opry included Sonya Isaacs! Watch the pair cover this Hank Williams classic here!

Country music star Josh Turner and gospel music artist Sonya Isaacs brought their version of Hank Williams’ “I Saw the Light” to the Grand Ole Opry. Enjoy their touching performance below!

“Hank focused a lot on the blues aspect of human emotion and the loneliness and the heartache and heartbreak and all that,” Turner shared with Rolling Stone Country. “I like to think he would appreciate what I’ve done with this song, because it adds that element to a song that has always sounded upbeat and happy and positive.”

This cover of “I Saw the Light” can be found on Turner’s I Serve a Savior gospel album.

“I Saw the Light” Lyrics 

I wandered so aimless life filled 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 alone
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
Praise the Lord, I saw the light

Praise the Lord, I saw the light
