Joan of Arc - Maid of Heaven

The Song of Joan of Arc
By Christine de Pisan
Stanza 7

But now I wish to relate just how
God accomplished this through His grace.
I pray for His guidance lest I omit anything
worthy of being remembered by the human race.
May it be told everywhere and may it
be written down, no matter the look,
or whom it may displease, recorded
in many a chronicle and history-book!

Original in French

Mais or vueil raconter comment
Dieu a tout ce fait de sa grace,
A qui je pri qu'avisement
Me doint, que rien je n'y trespasse.
Raconté soit en toute place,
Car ce est digne de mémoire,
Et escript, à qui que desplace,
En mainte cronique et hystoire!1
