Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 41

She will defeat the English for good,
and cast them down, for this is God's will
who hears the prayers of the good,
whom they wanted to do great harm.
For the blood of those dead and gone,
again cries out against them.
God will no longer tolerate their
evil so instead they are condemned.

Original in French

Et sachez que par elle Anglois
Seront mis jus sans relever,
Car Dieu le veult, qui oit les voiz
Des bons qu'ilz ont voulu grever!
Le sanc des occis sans lever
Crie contre eulz. Dieu ne veult plus
Le souffrir, ains les reprouver
Comme mauvais, il est conclus1
