Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 11

A miracle it was and who
would ever believe if not perfect
and were less well known and not
crystal-clear in every respect,
It is a fact worth remembering,
that God should have laid
(and this is the truth!) His
great blessing and grace upon
France through a young maid.

Original in French

Par tel miracle voirement
Que, se la chose n'yert notoire
Et évident quoy et comment,
Il n'est homs qui le peiist croire?
Chose est bien digne de mémoire
Que Dieu, par une vierge tendre,
Ait adès voulu (chose est voire!)
Sur France si grant grace estendre.1
