In medio maris

Dedication:

Per S. Pietro
Originally for Alto and basso continuo.
Original Language: Latin

In medio maris contrarius erat ventus.
In imbre, in unda, in fluctibus levis
navicula levis, navicula iactabatur.
Iam quarta vigilia noctis errabant,
dolentes, lugentes.

Ecce a longe, ecce ambulans super mare.
Ecce venit ad eos.
Turbati sunt stupore, timore,
clamabant pavidi, “fantasma est.”
Locutus est Iesus, “Ego sum.
Veni et tu, Petrus, super aquas.”
Discessit e navicula, ambulavit, tremuit, precatus est Petrus.

In vento valido, in unda liquida
cupes immergitur.
“Iam cado, iam pereo!
Me salvum fac, Iesu.”

Apprehendit, repprehendit eum Dominus:
“Modicæ fidei, quare dubitasti? ”
Clamabant undique gentes, “Fili Dei vere tu es.
Alleluia.”

In the midst of the sea

For Saint Peter

In medio maris contrarius erat ventus.
In imbre, in unda, in fluctibus levis
navicula levis, navicula iactabatur.
Iam quarta vigilia noctis errabant,
dolentes, lugentes.

Ecce a longe, ecce ambulans super mare.
Ecce venit ad eos.
Turbati sunt stupore, timore,
clamabant pavidi, “fantasma est.”
Locutus est Iesus, “Ego sum.
Veni et tu, Petrus, super aquas.”
Discessit e navicula, ambulavit, tremuit, precatus est Petrus.

In vento valido, in unda liquida
cupes immergitur.
“Iam cado, iam pereo!
Me salvum fac, Iesu.”

Apprehendit, repprehendit eum Dominus:
“Modicæ fidei, quare dubitasti? ”
Clamabant undique gentes, “Fili Dei vere tu es.
Alleluia.”
