I Saw the Light

This song is by Bull City Red and appears on the compilation album Meet You at the Station: The Vintage Recordings (1935-1949) (1991) by Reverend Gary Davis.

One morning I was walking 'long
I heard a voice and I saw no one

I saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

I saw the light that a gambler don't see
When I saw the light it was shining on me

I saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

Don't you wish your mother could rise and tell
When you're standin at the gates of hell

I saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

Oh if ya hada been there when I came through
Oh their head got wet in the midnight dew

Saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

Oh John declared that he saw a man
Had ten thousand Blessings in his hand

Saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

Oh Satan is mad I am glad
He missed that soul that he thought he had

Saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

I don't know what your mother would say about
This old world ain't no friend to her

Saw the light, I saw the light mourners
I saw the light, I saw the light from heaven come down

I looked east and I lookin' west
The fire gonna burn up the wilderness

Saw the light, I saw the light mama
I saw the light, I saw the light
