Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 24

When we consider your person,
being just a simple young maid,
who God gave the strength and
the power to champion our crusade.
Who casts the rebels down at ease
and nourishes France with the sweet
milk of peace that does not cease.
This indeed is something miraculous!

Original in French

Considerée ta personne,
Qui es une jeune pucelle,
A qui Dieu force et povoir donne
D'estre le champion et celle
Qui donne à France la mamelle
De paix et doulce norriture,
Et ruer jus la gent rebelle,
Véez bien chose oultre nature!1
