Andreas, lines 822-924

God then commands his angels to carry Andreas and his men, in their sleep, to their destination. They awake and note that they are now in Myrmedonia. Andreas tells his men that God himself was on the ship with them. The men tell Andreas that they slept and dreamed that they were carried through the air. They saw angels, and the patriarch David, and they saw Andreas himself in the presence of the Son.

Andreas is heartened by this vision of heaven, and pray to God, thanking him. God then reveals himself to Andreas in the form of a young man. He hails Andreas and says that He will keep watch over him and protect him from his enemies.

Andreas then asks why he was unable to recognize God a first when they were on the sea.
