Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 22


Blessed is He who created you Joan,
born at a most portentous time
His maiden filled with the Spirit
sent to perform deeds so sublime.
For thru the Spirit you are so blest
possessing gifts in such abundance
He clearly refuses you no request.
How can we ever begin to repay you?

Original in French

Tu, Jehanne, de bonne heure née,
Benoist soit cil qui te créa!
Pucelle de Dieu ordonnée,
En qui le Saint Esprit réa
Sa grant grace, en qui ot et a
Toute largesse de hault don,
N'onc requeste ne te véa.
Qui te rendra assez guerdon?1
