And seeing him walking on the sea, they were affrighted and said ; It is an apparition; and they cried out for fear. And forthwith Jesus spake to them and said ; be of good heart; it is I; fear not. And Peter answering, said: Lord if it be thee, bid me come to thee on the water. And he said: Come. And Peter going out of the ship, walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But perceiving the wind very high; he was afraid ; and beginning to sink, be cried out, saying ; Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretching forth his hand, took hold of him; and said to him : 0 thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt ? And being come into the ship, the wind ceased. Then they that were in the
ship came and adored him, saying: Thou art truly the Son of God. CREDO.
