Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 59

Alas, he is so magnanimous
wanting to give pardon to everyone.
And it is the Maid, loyal servant
of God, insisting that this be done.
Now all loyal French submit your
hearts and yourselves to him.
And when he speaks you will know,
you will not be reproached again.

Original in French

Helas! Il est si debonnaire
Qu'à chascun il veult pardonner!
Et la Pucelle lui fait faire,
Qui ensuit Dieu. Or ordonner
Vueillez voz cueurs et vous donner
Comme loyaulx François à lui!
Et quant on l'orra sermonner
N'en serés reprins de nulluy.1
