Notes: BAPTIZE - (2h)[A dot], POs ><, FOs away, both hands are tipped to one side so that the thumbs point > NDS, then > upwards. For an animated gif of this sign, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Baptize.
THE - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
SEAL - Stamp upturned NDH palm with [S], PO > NDS, FO away.
PURE - Like NICE but the DH moves backwards slightly on the palm, pauses, then moves forward rapidly to show intensity.
SALVATION - SAVE.
SIN - (2h)[X] touch their respective sides of the mouth, descend to neutral space and circle antisymmetrically parallel to the chest. For an animated gif of this sign, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Sin.
RESURRECT/ION - [V], PO up, FO away, pronates and hops onto the palm of [B], PO up, FO away. For an animated gif of this sign, see Valley Bible Church - ASL dictionary: Resurrection.
PARDON - Sign EXCUSE, switch dominance and sign EXCUSE again.
X-ON-FOREHEAD - Use thumb to trace the sign of the cross on the forehead: vertical line downwards and horizontal line from left to right (despite dominance).
1. Baptized in water, sealed by the Spirit,
Cleansed by the blood of Christ our king;
Heirs of salvation, trusting his promise -
Faithfully now God's praise we sing.
2. Baptized in water, sealed by the Spirit,
Dead in the tomb with Christ our king;
One with his rising, freed and forgiven,
Thankfully now God's praise we sing.

Marked with the sign of Christ our king;
Born of one Father, we are his children -
Joyfully now God's praise we sing.
