EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Refrain: GOD SAY, COME-TO-me ME. ME WILL MAKE (2h)YOU PRECIOUS LIKE DIAMOND, NAME~SHINY. ||: (2h)YOU WILL SIT-IN-SEMICIRCLE IDEA~LIKE MY CROWN. :||
1. SOME THINGS ONLY YOU"each" CAN DO. SOME WORDS ONLY YOU"each" CAN SAY. TRUST ME, DON'T TREMBLE. WHY? ME WILLING GO-WITH (2h)YOU, SHOW"all" (2h)YOU RIGHT WAY. Refrain
2. LONG-AGO ME MAKE WORLD, DECIDE SUFFER CALVARY. ME CHOOSE HELP"all" (2h)YOU. GIVE-UP MY LIFE. THRILLED (2h)YOU MY #OWN. Refrain
Notes: COME-TO-me - (2h)[B^] move in circles pivoting at the wrists to beckon someone to come.
ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
PRECIOUS - (2h)[5:], hold FTs by the sides of the chin and move down while maintaining contact and closing to (2h)[S].
NAME~SHINY - starts like the sign NAME, the NDH - left in place while the DH touches it with the [open 8] (as in the sign FEEL), then moves upwards while twisting the wrist.
The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.
SIT-IN-SEMICIRCLE - (2h)[4:], POs > signer, FOs up, hands are held together and separate tracing a semicircle so that the hands end up at either side of the head.
IDEA~LIKE - a blending where IDEA has a [Y] instead of an [I] in anticipation of LIKE which is signed smoothly right afterwards.
CROWN - (2h)[L:] (like BIG) place crown on head with large single movement. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Crown.
YOU"each" - [1^] sweeps from NDS to DS while jabbing to show each individual is different.
TREMBLE - (2h)[1^], POs down, FOs away, hands vibrate from side to side symmetrically to show legs shaking.
CALVARY - MOUNTAIN + POSITIVE held high as if it were a cross on top of the mountain just indicated.
#OWN - Fingerspelled but it twists > signer when the "W" is produced.
Refrain: Come, come unto me; I will make you a jewel. Precious and rare the glory you'll bear in the crown of God.
1. There are deeds you alone must do; there are words only you can say. Trust in me, and do not tremble, for I go with you to show you the way.
2. From the dawn of creation, from the tree on Calvary, I chose you and gave my life to be my own, to be my delight.
