Yep. They're both pretty close to the PIE base.
Lith: Dievas dave dantis; Dievas duos duonos
Sans: Devas adadit datas; Devas dat dhanas
Latin: Deus dedit dentes; Deus dabit panem
This was an example I found in a book on the Indo-Europeans.
Dievas dave dantis; Dievas duos duonos
God gave teeth; God will give bread - Lithuanian proverb
