about

After initially hostile encounters with Maori in New Zealand, Captain Cook is both relieved and elated that friendly trade has been established between his crew and the Maori. He sings a song of hope for a long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationship between the British and the natives, also expressing optimism that the example will reverberate around the world.

lyrics

LET PEACE PREVAIL (IN NEW ZEALAND)

(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon)

TWO MIGHTY PEOPLES
NOBLE TRIBES AND ROYAL CROWN
IN GOD’S EYES WE'RE EQUAL
WILL BE KNOWN TO ALL THE WORLD

TWO MIGHTY NATIONS
HISTORIES BOLD AND BRAVE
WITH RIGHTEOUS ASPIRATIONS
WILL BE KNOWN TO ALL THE WORLD

LET PEACE PREVAIL IN NEW ZEALAND
LET PEACE PREVAIL
LET PEACE PREVAIL IN NEW ZEALAND
LET PEACE PREVAIL

TWO MIGHTY SAGAS
OF COURAGE, CRAFT AND ART
BOTH WITH HUMAN DRAMAS
WILL BE KNOWN TO ALL THE WORLD

TWO MIGHTY LANDS
ACHIEVING PEACE AND HONOR
HOLDING OUT OUR HANDS
WILL BE KNOWN TO ALL THE WORLD

LET PEACE PREVAIL

ONE MIGHTY DESIGN
TRADING AND ADVANCEMENT
LESSONS FOR MANKIND
WILL BE KNOWN TO ALL THE WORLD

LET PEACE PREVAIL IN NEW ZEALAND
LET PEACE PREVAIL
LET PEACE PREVAIL IN NEW ZEALAND
LET PEACE PREVAIL
