Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 23

And who in history can be praised more,
or what deeds are greater in all of yore?
Moses was greatly blessed by God and
possessed many virtues and miraculously
led God's people out of the bondage
of Egypt into the promised land.
In the same way, blessed Maid, you
have led us out of evil in our own land.

Original in French

Que puet-il d'autre estre dit plus
Ne des grans faiz des temps passez?
Moˇses, en qui Dieu afflus
Mist graces et vertuz assez,
Il tira, sans estre lassez,
Le pueple de Dieu hors d'Egipte
Par miracle. Ainsi repassez
Nous as de mal, Pucelle eslite!1
