I desire the Cross!... I love the sacrifice!....
Oh, deign to call me, I am ready to suffer.
To suffer for Your love is joy to me.
Jesus, my Beloved, I want to die for You. (2x)
 
[Scene 14]
Saint Michael appears with the other two saints. He carries a sword, Saint Catherine a palm and Saint Margaret a crown. (Melody: "Les Rameaux" ["The Branches"].)
 
SAINT MICHAEL
 
The time has come, Joan, you must leave.
The Lord Himself arms you for war.
Daughter of God, do not fear death
For soon will come the life for which you hope.
 
SAINT MARGARET
 
You will reign, dear child.
 
SAINT CATHERINE
 
Following the Lamb, with the virginal company
 
THE TWO SAINTS together.
 
Like us, you shall sing
Of God's royal magnificence.
