Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 21

And blessed Maid, are you to be forgotten?
For God has honored you so much using you
against the rope binding France so tightly
which you untied in your debut.
Could our praise ever be enough
for one that we so greatly adore.
You brought peace to our land,
so greatly ravaged by war

Original in French

Et toy, Pucelle beneurée,
Y dois-tu estre obliée,
Puis que Dieu t'a tant honnorée
Que as la corde desliée
Qui tenoit France estroit liée?
Te pourroit-on assez louer
Quant ceste terre, humiliée
Par guerre, as fait de paix douer?1
