“New World In My View” Lyrics

August 24, 2009 by  

The song at the end of Episode 10 of HBO’s True Blood can be found on the Miami Vice Soundtrack.  Maybe they reveal more about where the show is going than just where the show has been.  Here are the lyrics, we’ll let you decide:

the-gang

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
I said I’m running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
Lord said I’m running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view

Come on yeah nonny, help me to run this holy righteous place
Can’t you yell then, save your calling, well he’s knockin at your door today

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
I said I’m running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view

(John he ? a record) oh he suffered for Jesus Christ
They places him on an island called Atmus
He had a great revelation sign

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
I said I’m running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view 3x

21st Chapter Revelation
John talking about the new world
Said I saw a new heaven and a new earth
For the first heaven and the first earth were passed away
And thou will no more see

And John said I saw a new Jerusalem coming down
From god out of heaven, prepared as a bride
A dawn for a husband, amen
You know (we are a city)? that’s set on the hill
Cannot be here, (a person is a city?), amen

So let us humble ourselves dear one
Get ready for the new world
Prepare yourself to live in that holy city
That same city, that same kingdom that Jesus was talking to his disciples about
When he left them and gone back to his father
Don’t forget it, amen
Said let not your heart be troubled
Believe in God, believe in me also

In my father’s house are many mansions
Everyone not so, I would have told you
I’m going to prepare a place for you
And if I go to prepare a place for you
I will come again and receive you onto myself
That what I am, that you may be also

Now tell me dear one, why was Jesus
He was standing on earth talking to his disciples, amen
Promising them that he’s coming back for them, amen
To live with them here on this earth, amen
He’s gonna live with you in your human body
And He and his family, amen

So don’t get the bible mixed up
You just keep that same old way that grandpa and grandma had
They didn’t know any better, got winked at them and said
And they was well blessed for what they knew
And you gonna be cursed for turning the word down, amen
Let the church say amen
Let’s wake up now and get in line

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
I said I’m running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view

I got the new world in my view
On my journey I pursue
I said I’m running, running for the city
I got the new world in my view

    Listening to Sister Gertrude Morgan singing on King Britt’s New World in my View I noticed that some of the lyrics published on- line for this song are incorrect. I could not catch every word she sang and spoke, but here is what I could gather.

    King Britt – I Got The New World In My View

    I got the new world in my view
    On my journey I pursue
    I said I’m running, running for the city
    I got the new world in my view

    I got the new world in my view
    On my journey I pursue
    Lord I’m running, running for the city
    I got the new world in my view

    Come on yeah nonny, help me to run this holy righteous place
    Can’t you hear the, Saviour calling, well he’s knockin at your door today

    I got the new world in my view
    On my journey I pursue
    I said I’m running, running for the city
    I got the new world in my view

    John he bought a record, oh he suffered for Jesus Christ
    They placed him on an island called Patmos
    He had a great revelation sign

    I got the new world in my view
    On my journey I pursue
    I said I’m running, running for the city
    I got the new world in my view 3x

    21st Chapter Revelation
    John talking about the new world
    Said I saw a new heaven and a new earth
    For the first heaven and the first earth were passed away
    And there was no more sea

    John said I saw a new Jerusalem coming down
    From God out of heaven, prepared as a bride
    Adorned for her husband, amen
    You know we are a city that’s set on the hill
    Cannot be hid, a person is a city, amen

    So let us humble ourselves dear one
    Get ready for the new world
    Prepare yourself to live in that holy city
    That same city, that same kingdom that Jesus was talking to his disciples about
    When he left them and gone back to his father
    Don’t forget it, amen
    Said let not your heart be troubled
    Believe in God, believe in me also

    In my father’s house are many mansions
    If it were not so, I would have told you
    I’m going to prepare a place for you
    And if I go to prepare a place for you
    I will come again and receive you onto myself
    That where I am, there ye may be also

    Now tell me dear one, where was Jesus
    He was standing on earth talking to his disciples, amen
    Promising them that he’s coming back for them, amen
    To live with them here on this earth, amen
    He’s gonna live with you in your human bodies
    He and his family, amen

    So don’t get the bible mixed up
    You just keep that same old way that grandma, greatgrandma and grandpa had
    They didn’t know any better, God winked at ther ignorance and said
    And they was well blessed for what they knew
    And you gonna be cursed for turning the word down, amen
    Let the church say amen
    Let’s wake up now and get in line

    I got the new world in my view
    On my journey I pursue
    I said I’m running, running for the city
    I got the new world in my view

    I got the new world in my view
    On my journey I pursue
    I said I’m running, running for the city
    I got the new world in my view

    The name of the island is Patmos (it’s a Greek one). Trust me. It’s where John wrote the revelation.
