There is an ancient peace, you carry in your heart

You carry in your heart and have not lost
There is a silence there, the world cannot intrude
The world cannot intrude into your heart
Out hearts must be so quiet, if we are to hear
If we are to hear, we must be still

Garth says, “Recently at concerts when chatting with people I have found that many are struggling with the current world situation; with issues that are happening in terms of wars and violence, refugees, and of course Palestine and Israel. I thought it might be useful to have a few Quiet Days that might give us time to pause and to be reminded of key principles of justice and a spirituality that is rooted in the prophets and in Jesus.

“It would be a time to take stock, to reminisce, to be reminded of our roots, and deliberately to take time to be quiet, time for prayer, liturgy, music and reflection. A day to renew our strength and our vision.
“When I put out feelers about this I found that it seemed to be ringing bells for people.  I’m calling the dayThere is an Ancient Peace,a song that’s onMoonriseandSongs from the Fifth Gospel,which you is rooted in the Garden of Gethsemane.”

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.
