Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 19

How can you ever thank God enough?
Serve Him always in your every deed
for He rescued you when you were in need.
And saved all of France from war
turning adversity into lasting peace.
What but His holy providence saved you?
Were you ever worthy of deserving
such honor by Him bestowed upon you?

Original in French

Et comment pourras-tu jamais
Dieu mercier à souffisance,
Servir, doubter en tous tes fais,
Qui de si grant contrariance
T'a mis à paix, et toute France
Relevée de tel ruyne,
Quant sa tressainte providence
T'a fait de si grant honneur digne?1
