Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 60

I pray God that He give you the courage,
to act this way so these wars may cease,
and erase from memory the storms of past
as we all resume our lives in peace.
May you live out your days loyal to
your King without any further offence.
And may he return to you the same in kind
always a ruler with great benevolence.

Original in French

Si pry Dieu qu'Il mecte en courage
A vous tous qu'ainsy le faciez,
Afin que le cruel orage
De ces guerres soit effaciez,
Et que vostre vie passiez
En paix, soubz vostre chief greigneur,
Si que jamais ne l'offensiez
Et que vers vous soit bon seigneur.
