Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 32

In truth the beauty of her holy life
shows she is blessed by God's grace.
And for that reason her actions are
much more easy to accept and embrace.
Whatever she does she has her eyes fixed
upon God to Whom she prays and Whom she
serves in word and deed, which makes it plain
that her love for Him will never ever wane.

Original in French

Et sa belle vie, par foy,
Monstre qu'elle est de Dieu en grace;
Par quoy on adjouste plus foy
A son fait. Car, quoy qu'elle face,
Tousjours a Dieu devant la face,
Qu'elle appelle, sert et deprie
En fait, en dit; ne va en place
Où sa devotion detrie.1
