All:
Sink and scatter clouds of war,
Sun of peace shine full and far!
Sink and scatter clouds of war,
Sun of peace shine full and far!
Sink and scatter clouds of war,
Sun of peace shine full and far!
Sun of peace shine full and far,
Shine full and far!

Altos:
Why should nations slay and spoil,
With hearts to love and hands to toil,
Wherefore turn to mutual ill
God giv'n strength and skill?

Sopranos:
Why should nations slay and spoil,
With hearts to love and hands to toil,
Wherefore turn to mutual ill
God giv'n strength and skill?

All:
Blest the Prince whose people's choice,
Bids the land in peace rejoice,
Blest the land whose Prince is wise,
Peaceful progress to devise.

Why should nations slay and spoil,
With hearts to love and hands to toil?
Clos'd the brazen doors of Mars,
Peace her golden gates unbars.
Clos'd the brazen doors of Mars,
Peace her golden gates unbars.
Let the nations hear her call,
Enter, welcome,
Enter, welcome, one and all!
