Notes: IGNITE - Looks like lighting a match by striking the NDH palm with DH [bX]. For a QuickTime video of this sign, see ASL Pro: Bentshlicht.
ALIVE - LIVE+.
(2h)YOU - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
COME-ON - (2h)[B^] move in circles pivoting at the wrists to beckon someone to do something.

The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.
1. We are ignited, we are ablaze,
Burning with the fire of life.
We have invited you to this place,
To step into the circle of light.
Refrain: We are carriers of the light,
Come to shatter the darkness.
We have power to pierce the night,
Carriers of the light.
2. Standing together shining our light,
There is no stopping us now.
Chasing the shadows into the night,
Overcoming darkness and doubt. Refrain
3. For when it touches you
When it sets you aglow,
the spark within your heart
will light the flame in your soul! Refrain
