Assumpta est Maria in cœlum:
gaudent Angeli,
laudantes benedicunt Dominum.
Maria Virgo assumpta est
ad æthereum thalamum,
in quo Rex regum stellato sedet solio.

In odorem unguentorum tuorum currimus:
adolescentulæ dilexerunt te nimis.
Benedicta filia tu a Domino:
quia per te fructum vitæ communicavimus.

Mary is taken up into heaven:
The Angels rejoice;
joyfully they bless the Lord.
The Virgin Mary is taken up
to the heavenly marriage chamber
in which the King of kings sits upon his starry throne.

We run to the fragrance of your ointments:
the young women have loved you greatly.
Blessed are you by the Lord, O daughter,
for through you, we have received the fruit of life.
