Quod Carne Christum Virgo Paris Vocant

This hymn was used for Lauds on the Vigil of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 14) in the Paris Breviary (1736). 

Quod carne Christum, Virgo, paris, vocant
Hinc te beatam: rectius occupas
Nomen beatæ, quæ fideli
Credideris, pia Virgo, corde.

Orbata Nato, non muliebriter
Ploras ademptum. Scilicet altior
Tellure cælestes, triumphans
Quo rediit, meditaris arces.

Amoris illuc te rapit impetus:
Tardi sed obstant vincula corporis,
Dolesque durum longioris
Exilii tolerare pondus.

Hæc vota tandem qui cumulas, Pater,
Succurre nostris, auspice Filio;
Infunde sacrum, quo vigemus,
Pectoribus, Deus alme, Flamen. Amen.

Words: Fr. Charles Coffin, 1736.
Tune: Unknown.
