EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
1. GOD ANOINT ME FOR-FOR? INFORM PEOPLE LOWLY GOOD N-E-W-S. HEART DISAPPOINTED HEAL CAN. SLAVE, ME ANNOUNCE OPPRESSION-OFF. PRISONER NOW FREE. REASON HE-rt ANOINT ME, THAT.
Refrain: THE LORD HIS-rt SPIRIT FINISH DESCEND-ON-me ME. WHY? OUR LORD ANOINT ME.
2. GOD ANNOINT ME FOR-FOR? ANNOUNCE THIS YEAR GOD FAVOR US. PEOPLE MOURN, GOD HE-rt COMFORT.HE-rt ANNOINT ME FOR-FOR? OFFER OIL MAKE HAPPY AND CLOTHES OFFER JOY. Refrain
Notes: ANOINT - [A dot] circles head with DH thumb pointing down.
ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
LOWLY - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs up, move downwards arcing towards the signer. This is the opposite of the sign ADVANCED. For an animated gif of ADVANCED, see Animated dictionary of religious signs - Deaf Missions: Exalted.
OPPRESSION-OFF - Starts like PRESSURE, DH [B], PO down, FO away, push down slightly on [S], PO > DS, FO away, then the DH is brought upwards suddenly and the signer mouths "off".
DESCEND-ON-me - (2h), PO > signer, moves down towards signer from above with wg.
FAVOR - PREFER.
MOURN - (2h)[S] twist at heart.
COMFORT - Like COMFORTABLE but signed more slowly.
JOY - alt.HAPPY.
1. To bring glad tidings to the lowly, to heal the broken heart, He has anointed me. To proclaim liberty to captives, release to prisoners, He has anointed me.
Refrain: The Spirit of God is upon me, He has anointed me.
2. To announce a year of favor, to comfort those who mourn, He has anointed me. To give to them the oil of gladness and share a mantle of joy, He has anointed me.
