A prayer of thanksgiving and joy for the ending of hostilities and peace between the British Empire and the Boer Republics in South Africa – the "Second Boer War". In this war the British took over the territory of the Boer Republics. After a difficult and brutal war, the Boers could not withstand the full might of the British Empire rallied against them, and were forced to surrender. As a result of the war, all of South Africa came under British rule. The war lasted three years, 1899–1902, and ended with the peace agreement known as the Treaty of Vereeniging, by which the two Boer Republics ceased to exist, and the Boers recognized British sovereignty. The British promised to rebuild the devastated land, pay 3 million pounds
