about

Excerpted from the final scene of ‘Journeys”: In Hawaii at the 150th year celebration of Captain James Cook’s first encounter with those islands, the audience there sings a reprise of ‘A National Treasure’, followed by the appearance of 17-year-old James, wife Elizabeth and Captain Cook reprising three of their songs.

lyrics

A National Treasure (Reprise)
I’LL FIND WHERE THE REAL TRUTH LIES
(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon)

(ALL)
TO ONE AND ALL, LET HIM BE KNOWN
A HERO ON THE SEAS, HE LOVED TO ROAM
SCIENTIST, HUMANIST
CAPTAIN COOK—MEASURE FOR MEASURE
HE IS A WORLD-RENOWN TREASURE

NOW AND ALWAYS LET IT BE TOLD
THE STORY OF ONE STRONG AND BOLD
ASTRONOMER, PHILOSOPHER, SCIENTIST, HUMANIST
CAPTAIN COOK—MEASURE FOR MEASURE
HE IS A WORLD-RENOWN TREASURE

(James)
LET PROVIDENCE AND FORTITUDE
BE THE WINDS THAT FILL MY SAILS
TO ACHIEVE MY LIFE’S AMBITION
AND LEAD ME ON GREAT MISSIONS

(Elizabeth)
YES OUR LOVE CAN BE . . .
THE SUNRISE OF MY MORNING
THE SUNSHINE OF MY NOON
THE AMBER OF MY SUNSET
THE CANDLE OF MY NIGHT

(James)
THEY SAY THIS SON OF LAND
IS CALLED MASTER OF THE SEA
ONLY THE WORLDWIDE OCEANS
AND THE WIND CAN SET ME FREE
