Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc

Joan, this young peasant girl
born of humble stock
believed, she be the answer
as English forces invaded France.

This young peasant girl, who loved
the teachings of the Catholic Church,
believed God had spoken to her
and it be her duty, to save France.

She was mocked by her elders
yet, she believed in her words;
give me an army, and I will drive
these English infidels, from our lands.

Joan led French armies into battle
dressed in white, carrying her banner,
her victories were widespread
her fame spread across France.

Upon her capture, her fate was sewn
dying the death of a martyr,
burned at the stake as a witch,
as she prayed for her accusers.
