Dómine, si tu es,
júbe me veníre ad te súper áquas.
Et exténdens mánum, apprehéndit éum.
Et díxit Jésus:
Módicae fídei, quáre dubitásti?

Cúmque vidísset véntum válidum veniéntem,
tímuit, et cum coepísset mérgi,
clamávit: Dómine, sálvum me fac.
Et exténdens mánum, apprehéndit éum.
Et díxit Jésus:
Módicae fídei, quáre dubitásti?

"Lord, if it is you,
Bid me to come to you on the water."
And extending a hand, he caught him.
And Jesus said,
"Of little faith, why did you doubt?"

For when he saw a strong wind coming,
he was afraid, and as he began to sink,
he cried out, "Lord, save me!"
And extending a hand, he caught him.
And Jesus said,
"Of little faith, why did you doubt?"
