Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 20

May you be praised for this, great God!
For it is all our duty to thank you,
who decreed the time and place for
these great blessings to come true.
With hands clasped both great and small
come together giving thanks as one
to our Heavenly Lord for all.
You have guided us from war to peace.

Original in French

Tu en soyes loué, hault Dieu!
A Toy gracier tous tenuz
Sommes, qui donné temps et lieu
As, où ces biens sont avenus.
[A] jointes mains, grans et menus,
Graces Te rendons, Dieu céleste,
Par qui nous sommes parvenus
A paix, et hors de grant tempeste!1
