Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 44

Therefore, what man in history can compare
to this woman who must wear the crown.
Her deeds suffice to show to all,
how God has given her more courage
than all the men of world renown.
But she is yet to finish her mission,
for I believe God sent her here to
bring peace to earth, this I envision.

Original in French

Donc desur tous les preux passez,
Ceste doit porter la couronne,
Car ses faiz ja monstrent assez
Que plus prouesse Dieu lui donne
Qu'à tous ceulz de qui l'on raisonne.
Et n'a pas encor tout parfait!
Si croy que Dieu ça jus l'adonne,
Afin que paix soit par son fait.1
