Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 15

And I firmly believe that such grace
bestowed by God upon you in this way
portends future great deeds ordained
by Him to take place after today.
And bring to completion some solemn task
for which He has destined you to be the
author. I believe too that he has chosen
you to complete all that he may ask.

Original in French

Si croy fermement que tel grace
Ne te seroit de Dieu donnée,
Se à toy, en temps et espace,
Il n'estoit de Lui ordonnée
Quelque grant chose solempnée
A terminer et mettre à chief,
Et qu'Il t'ait donné destinée
D'estre de tresgrans faiz le chief.1
