Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 6


Now let us welcome our King!
Rejoice at his return from his fall,
overjoyed at the site of his splendor.
Let us all both great and small
step forward to greet him-no one
hold back-salute him with joyful face.
Praising God who has been so kind
let shouts of "Noel!" fill the place.

Original in French

Or faisons feste nostre roy!
Que tresbien soit-il revenu!
Resjoz de son noble arroy,
Alons trestous, grant et menu,
Au devant -- nul ne soit tenu! -
Menant joie le saluer,
Louant Dieu, qui l'a maintenu,
Criant "Nol!" en hault huer.1
