Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 38

You who in pain and suffering
expose both life and limb.
In defense of right you dare contend
with danger, be constant for in the end,
you will win glory and praise in heaven.
For all who fight for justice and right
wins a place in Paradise among the bright.
This I do dare to say!

Original in French

Qui sanc, corps et vie exposez
Pour le droit, en peine si dure,
Et contre tous perilz osez
Vous aler mettre à l'avanture.
Soiés constans, car je vous jure
Qu'en aurés gloire ou ciel et los!
Car qui se combat pour droiture
Paradis gaingne, dire l'os.1
