about

'Let Peace Prevail in New Zealand' is sung by James Cook in the musical play 'Journeys: Captain James Cook'. Both relieved and elated that friendly trade had been established between his crew and the Maori, Cook sings a song of hope for a long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationship between the British and the natives that will reverberate around the world. In his six-month circumnavigation, he not only established peaceful relations but also was the first to create detailed charts of the North and South Islands and, with the mastery of the artists and scientists on board, he returned to England in 1771 with detailed scientific explanations and exquisite drawings of the magnificent people, plants, animals, and scenery of this extraordinary land.

Son of a North Yorkshire farmer, James Cook rose from his humble origins to become one of the world’s greatest explorers. Showing extraordinary care and concern for his crew and the natives he encountered during his three great Pacific voyages, he re-drew the map of the world and paved the way for the indigenous people of Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, French Polynesia and British Columbia to no longer live in global isolation. ‘Journeys: Captain James Cook’ is a full-length musical about Cook’s accomplishments, his loving relationship with his wife Elizabeth and his tragic death on the shore of Kealakekua Bay in Hawaii.

The 250th anniversary of Cook's accomplishments in New Zealand during his first voyage will be commemorated in 2020.

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
