Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 28

Esther, Judith and Deborah,
were all woman that were exceptional.
Through them God delivered His people
from oppression, and I have heard of
many other worthy women as well.
Through them God gave his people aid
and performed miracles with them,
but not a one can compare with this Maid.

Original in French

Hester, Judith et Delbora,
Qui furent dames de grant pris,
Par lesqueles Dieu restora
Son pueple, qui fort estoit pris,
Et d'autres plusers ay apris
Qui furent preuses, n'y ot celle,
Mains miracles en a pourpris.
Plus a fait par ceste Pucelle.1
