Hank Williams, Lost or Saved?
Hank Williams died at only 29. He had a voice that sounded twice his age. Although he wrote one of the greatest gospel songs of all time, “I saw the Light,” I fear he spent most of his life in darkness. Although he faced the barren waste looking for cool clear water, he drank himself to death with whiskey. It is too bad he did not limit his drinking to the Water of Life about whom he wrote many songs. Maybe on a broken piece of the ship, he escaped to dry land of Beulah (Acts 17:44). Or perhaps he flew away to Heaven from the back seat of his Cadillac. For those like Hank, who contributed much to the gospel he did not live really live, we hope for the best.
