Peace song re-released in South Pacific
“True Harmony,” a Christian song of peace, has acquired a new life in the South Pacific, to communicate its message to the world. The anthem came from a prayer composed in 1996 by Matt Wilson of Fiji, as that Pacific nation struggled to overcome tensions and bitterness caused by a military coup in the ethnically divided nation.
