    Jeanne d'Arc

    The honour of a loyal boy,
    The courage of a paladin,
    With maiden's mirth, the soul of joy,
    These dwelt her happy breast within.
    From shame, from doubt, from fear, from sin,
    As God's own angels was she free;
    Old worlds shall end, and new begin
    To be

    Ere any come like her who fought
    For France, for freedom, for the King;
    Who counsel of redemption brought
    Whence even the armed Archangel's wing
    Might weary sore in voyaging;
    Who heard her Voices cry "Be free!"
    Such Maid no later human spring
    Shall see!

    Saints Michael, Catherine, Margaret,
    Who sowed the seed that Thou must reap,
    If eyes of angels may be wet,
    And if the Saints have leave to weep,
    In Paradise one pain they keep,
    Maiden! one mortal memory,
    One sorrow that can never sleep,
    For Thee!
