Making Holy Dreams Come True


What have they done to the “Little Town”?

Imprisoned it in a concrete wall

Bethlehem – once a holy city

Trapped inside a ghetto wall.

Here where angels sang of peace

Where love and hope were born anew

Once surrounded by a heavenly host

Now surrounded by a concrete view.


Yet people crushed and hidden away

Still celebrate on Christmas Eve

Lighting candles for the child –

They still remember  – still believe.

So light a candle this Holy Night

For Bethlehem and Beit Sahour

And for all the people caught inside

That cold and grey prison wall


Longing for a world of peace

Where all are treated equally

Where all can recognise their worth

Where all can live with dignity –

Where all can join hands with neighbours

Whether Muslim, Christian or Jew

And find a way to live together

Making Holy dreams

Making Holy dreams come true.



To the God whose name is Mercy

Sadly some of Garth’s concerts are being postponed until we have a clearer idea of the course of the COVID-19 virus. We hope it won’t be too long before it’s possible to reschedule concerts and we look forward to that.

A song for today


From the album My Name Is Palestine

Chorus Inspired by words of Pope Francis

Verses influenced by words of US Trappist Monk Thomas Merton


To The God Whose Name Is Mercy


To the God whose name is mercy

To the God whose name is mercy

To the generous God of mercy

We take our stand with you


So tell the earth to shake with marching feet

Of messengers of peace –

Proclaim my way of love

To every nation and every race –

Show mercy and show love




Let old ways be over – no more hate

There shall be no more war

My people shall be one

To every nation and every race –

Show mercy and show love




We take our stand with you

Reach out our hand to you

Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs

and then sings them without fear.

His voice comes through clearly,

challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice,

needed more than ever in a fearful world, and in a sometimes timid church.

Please God, it will help us

sing redemption songs of our own.
