He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, 50 for they all saw him and were terrified.

Hymn: TLH 426, st. 1,2: The Lord my Shepherd Is
1. The Lord my Shepherd is,

2. He leads me to the place
Where heav’nly pasture grows,
Where living waters gently pass
And full salvation flows.
