EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
SAINT J-O-H-N YOU-ctr CRY"over time" TEARS RUN-IN-STREAMS MAKE DRY COUNTRY THEREABOUTS BLOSSOM. YOU-ctr WORK"over time", BREATH'sigh' DEEP. YOUR-ctr BOOK MANY TEACH-us US BECOME HOLY. YOU-ctr IDEA~LIKE LIGHT SHINE-DOWN, SHOW"all" GOD 'S MIRACLE. CRAZY-FOR, SAINT J-O-H-N OUR HOLY FATHER. HELP-us US TALK-WITH CHRIST GOD, OUR SOUL SAVE WILL.
Notes: SAINT - S-NICE.
YOU - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
TEARS - Trace tears under eyes.
RUN-IN-STREAMS - (2h), POs > signer, FOs ><, brush down cheeks multiple times.
BLOSSOM - (2h)[A] are held together but the hands are twisted like the beginning of CHANGE. Hands twist back while opening to (2h)[5:] with the hands still held together.
HOLY - H-NICE.
IDEA~LIKE - a blending where IDEA has a [Y] instead of an [I] in anticipation of LIKE which is signed smoothly right afterwards.
LIGHT - Same sign as BRIGHT and CLEAR, that is, (2h)[O^], POs away, FOs up, open to (2h), while separating. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Light - 1.
SHINE-DOWN - [O^] is held high PO > signer; hands open to [5^] while moving > signer.
MIRACLE - WONDERFUL(1x) WORK. For an animated gif of this sign, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Miracle.
CRAZY-FOR - [5:], PO > singer, FO up, is shaken slightly from side to side.
