Boltz, Ray - Brave New World Lyrics




Caught in the valley of shadow
Fear and doubt
Desperately searching
There was no way out
But then the hand of mercy
Came reaching for me
Lifted me out of my broken past
And brought me
Into the land of the free

Here in the brave new world
My faith is standing strong
Here in the brave new world
I'm right where I belong
It's Your amazing grace
That brought my heart
Right to this place
The fear is gone
I'm living in a brave new world

I stand on a mountain of possibilities
I hear You calling me to spread my wings
I know You'll hold me up, Lord
When I feel too weak to fly
'Cause it's through the power of your love
That keeps me soaring through the sky

Here in the brave new world
My faith is standing strong
Here in the brave new world
I'm right where I belong
It's Your amazing grace
That brought my heart
Right to this place
The fear is gone
I'm living in a brave new world

It was a universe of dark despair
Now I see You shining everywhere
I know You're always there

Here in the brave new world
My faith is standing strong
Here in the brave new world
I'm right where I belong
It's Your amazing grace
That brought my heart
Right to this place
The fear is gone
I'm living in a brave new world

    My mother is in a retirement home. My sisters think I don't care. Now my family who have always been Christians attack's me. I have had a hard time watching my mother getting older 89. She has been given drugs that took away her ability to carry on a conversation. She has Dematia. Stage one. No one gave me a manual on how to deal with this. So I have avoided going to see her. I love my mother very much. But they think I don't care. I forgive them. But they continue to attack me. Please pray God will help me to understand what I am dealing with. Shawn

  35. Janine Burke

    Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ today. He loves you and longs to be Lord of your life. He will help you through. You don't have to be alone! Bow before God and ask forgiveness for your sins and ask Him in your heart to be Lord, accepting His finished work on the cross alone for salvation. He is the only God who gave Himself, the only god who claimed to be God and proved it as He rose from the dead. All others are dried bones in a grave. Not Him! He lives and will return one day soon. Ask Him in your heart today. He will never leave you nor forsake you! Come as you are! He is calling for YOU today. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit our three-in-one God, love YOU. He loves you dearly! Can you hear the Holy Spirit calling you today? Please don't turn away.

    Romans 10: 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Janet Watters

    Always look up and keep moving forward. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

  36. Julie Kos

    Most beautiful song, and that it comes from a gay man makes it even more special. God loves all!! He used this man and song to help others and help them in difficult times. Love this song!

    Janet Watters

    sometimes GOD uses PEOPLE to get other people's attention. Homosexuality is an abomination to GOD and many people need to read GOD'S WORD and NOT CHANGE SCRIPTURE TO THEIR LIKING. GOD DOES love everyone but GOD wants everyone to turn FROM their wicked ways and TO SERVE, OBEY AND TO PUT GOD FIRST ABOVE ALL THING'S.

    Anna

    @Janet Watters While what you're saying is correct, the "church" has done a horrible job at restoring those with same sex attractions. The church being ALL Christians who would rather judge these people instead of helping to restore them. I can't think of one reason why anyone with a same sex attraction would go to the church for help because unlike any other sinner, they will be judged, and made to feel ashamed. One day we will ALL stand before throne of a Holy God. How many people will we be accountable for, because instead of walking with them toward restoration, we simply reminded them of what an abomination they are to God.

  37. johncharles4

    What will we say when we stand before the throne of judgement.God loves us and Jesus died for us to be forgiven. Please accept Jesus as your Savior.

  38. Mary Rhodes

    Love this song reminds me of my life thank you God for getting me through all my storms! Such an amazing voice a God given talent! God Bless You

  39. Lisa Warren

    To all with thumb down on this song. Evidently, you don't know Jesus. He loves you all, call on Jesus, he is the anchor through it all. Without Jesus, your eternal life will be spent in Hell, eternal torment. Please call upon Jesus today after He died for you escape Hell. And Jesus knows your heart. But you don't receive unless you ask. Jesus died for our sin, you are a sinner. He arose from the dead on the third day. About 40 days later ,Jesus ascended back into heaven. He will give you the peace that surpasses all understanding. If that heart is beating really fast now, then you are in the presence of Jesus. He is there waiting for you to ask Him for forgiveness, believe and accept the gift of new life that only Jesus can give. Ask Jesus to be Lord of your life. He is the anchor that will never fail you. Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Jesus is coming again, are you ready?

    I've been through many storms in my life, but Jesus held me through all of them. He is my rock and my strength.

  53. lazan arndt

    If you would add though the sails are torn and tattered , this would rhyme with The ship is battered. Just a thought. I like to sing it this way.

  60. ajaw tony

  61. Kathy zrinyi

    The rapture is about to happen. Cataclysmic event any day now.

  62. lastservant

    Please Vanlady21, Continue to make more videos like this. These songs we grew up on with our journey with Christ. They are precious, and with these lyric video I can share them with my church. Thanks

  63. Dave Ford

    My ship no longer has any masts for sails to be hung from. The enemy, the world, and lying and deceitful people have ruined my life. My ship isn't listing, its sinking and life is no longer a thing I can control. I've had 2 divorces(they both cheated on me) tearing my heart into tiny pieces that blew away in the storms. I keep going thru storm after storm and I have no direction anymore. I feel like the anchor has slipped and I'm being pushed into the rief to be broken and completely sink. I beg for help from God, but it never comes. When life gets to be so painful that you feel sooo abandoned it's hard to go on. My health is slipping away from me as is the rest of my family. Why must so much torment keep coming and destroying what little I have left? Only thing I can think of is that I must have angered God so he has let go of the rope. I only want peace and someone to honestly care about me so I'm no longer alone. Is this yo much yo ask for? How much longer do I have to wait till the ship is destroyed and it takes me with it?

    ESP PupsnKits

    Dave Ford god never lets go. You let go by focusing on your own struggles. If you want something for an example, look at Job.

  64. Southernn Sky

    You stand alone before the Lord on Judgement Day.You do not answer for anyone else .Just love people the way they are,regardless of race,religion,lifestyle,or economical status.

  65. Julie Carroll

    Lawrence Chewning is the original song writer and singer of this song. Please address this copywright issue. Thank you. Also if you can use his channel to link this. I will check back later. thank you.

  66. Susan Taylor

    I love this song

  67. Walter Burrows

    I listen to this song when I have depression and feel down and this song lets me know that no matter what God is with me and he will always be with me no matter what I'm going through

    Richard Baker

    In place of the spirit of heaviness a garment of praise, when depression come just pray to God asking him to deliver you in the name of Jesus, be believing, it shall come to pass that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be delivered, God bless!

  68. Joann Mohammed

    Good song br Nelson bit don't change the church to the world let the word change and come to God.I'm a young person and all these church putting on a dance show what's wrong with u people. When u dance make sure it's in the spirit not because u want to shake and jump up as if u all in a wild carnival show n

  69. Pamela Turnbow

    God gave Ray an amazing gift of songwriting and singing.. how he can turn his back of our Heavenly Father to leave his wife and children to live in sin with another man is something i will never understand..my heart breaks.. and i pray for his family.. and for his soul...

  70. Mike Conley

    Keep your faith in Jesus. He is doing a Great work in your life.

  71. Richard Vernon

    I have prayed for Ray boltz for years and it is my desire to see him come back to God! As we lived in the same city together I have this kinship with him songwriter to songwriter in that way! I never forgot the awesome music he did! But it won't mean a thing unless he comes back to God! I hope he has heard the testimony of Becket Cook!

  72. Richard Vernon

    I lived in the same City Ray boltz came from Muncie Indiana he was already a world-famous gospel songwriter when I came into that City! He was quite known throughout the world! God granted my prayer to be a gospel songwriter in August 1994! Which if you click on my name to the left you will see some of those right here on YouTube! I admired him and I did some of his soundtracks which are very good! Like the anchor holds! After a while ray quit the gospel altogether and decided to go into another lifestyle! I hope he has heard the testimony of Beckett Cook! I am still doing gospel music by the power of God today! And through him I am now a book author as well! I don't know if Ray boltz is living again for Jesus or not! That's only something he and God would know! I hope for his sake he does turn back to the gospel and renew his life with Christ!

  73. Joseph Roberts

    I sang this at my church years ago.

  74. House Prayer

    Hi I'm king Judah. Lovely music!

  75. Peggy Hixon

    I really need this I lost my dad yesterday but. He got saved daddy will Chou in heaven one day

  76. wenceday Duncan

    The anchor holds in spite of my numerous battles

  77. kbhvac

    We cannot lay the hand of blessing on what GOD has not and is not blessing. Great GOD, great salvation, great song, great talent, but it does not purchase an ‘indulgence’ for anyone for any sin. You cannot pay penance by singing it with a ‘thousand tongues’. One of my best friends in the Lord was in bondage to homosexuality. He hid it from most everyone, including me. He had an apostolic anointing. He died without having yet been delivered. I am sympathetic to those who struggle with addiction, but I do not excuse their sins. I am a former porn addict (over 40 years, over 20 years after I was born again and filled with HOLY SPIRIT) and I know from my experience how powerful the bondage. But GOD is more powerful and in HIS wisdom, will and way HE delivered me in a moment when I was all alone, right before I fell asleep. It’s been years and I have had no relapse. What I could not do in my own strength, Jesus did in HIS. But while I was still in my bondage, I never believed or claimed GOD made me that way. I just kept walking and believing and trusting that HE is able. I confessed my sin to HIM and HE forgave. I still don’t know why HE saved me. I am just grateful that HE did. HE chose me. I did not choose HIM. But I did not refuse HIS love and forgiveness when HE came to save me from all my sins.

  78. Jeff Bunkle

    I still listen to this song for one simple reason... Inspite of Ray's beliefs Jesus always forgives... ALWAYS. and his message rings true

  79. Darla Woodman

    When i first heard this song sung by a gentleman with one foot that was actually thr fr my son. But the man passed n went on to b with the Lord. Thanku n God bless.🗽😇😁⛪

  80. Jaclyn Shaw
