Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 43

She will also destroy the Saracens,
by conquering the Holy Land.
She will lead Charles there who,
God preserve, will see it firsthand.
For he is the one to conquer it,
and they both will win glory and fame,
and she will end her days with all
completed in the land they did reclaim.

Original in French

Des Sarradins fera essart,
En conquerant la Saintte Terre.
Là menra Charles, que Dieu gard!
Ains qu'il muire, fera tel erre.
Cilz est cil qui la doit conquerre.
Là doit-elle finer sa vie,
Et l'un et l'autre gloire acquerre.
Là sera la chose assovye.1
