Jesus sprach zu dem Blinden:
Was willst du, das ich dir tun soll?
Er sprach: Herr, dass ich sehen möge!
Und Jesus sprach zu ihm:
sei sehend, dein Glaub' hat dir geholfen.
Und alsbald ward er sehend
und folgete ihm nach und preisete Gott.
Und alles Volk, das solches sahe, lobete Gott.

Jesus saith to the blind man,
What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee?
And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. (lit.: that I might see)
And Jesus said unto him,
Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
And immediately he received his sight,
and followed him, glorifying God:
and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
