The disciples had spent the night on the lake, and when morning came, they saw a form coming toward them.
Some thought it was a ghost, but Jesus cried, “It is I.”
As soon as Peter saw it was the Lord, he cried,
Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
And Jesus said, “COME” and Peter CAME
