Ascendente Iesu in naviculam,
secuti sunt eum discipuli eius
et ecce motus magnus factus est in mari
ita ut navicula operiretur fluctibus
ipse vero dormiebat
et accesserunt ad eum discipuli eius
et suscitaverunt eum dicentes:

Domine salva nos perimus.
Et dicit eis Iesus:
Quid timidi estis modicae fidei:
Tunc surgens imperavit ventis et mari
et facta est tranquillitas magna.
