EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).

1. MY SAVIOR FINISH RISE. HE INFLUENCE WORLD TODAY.
ME KNOW-THAT HE STILL LIVE, DOESN'T-MATTER PEOPLE DISAGREE.
ME SEE HE KIND DO; ME HEAR HIS VOICE COMFORT.
EVERY TIME ME NEED HIM, HE ALWAYS NEAR.

Refrain: HE LIVE; HE LIVE. CHRIST JESUS LIVE TODAY.
TWO-OF-US WALK TOGETHER, TWO-OF-US CONVERSE, THROUGH LIFE DANGEROUS WAY.
HE LIVE; HE LIVE. SALVATION WILLING God-GIVE-TO-me.
YOU ASK-me HOW ME KNOW HE LIVE.
HE LIVE INSIDE-SELF MY HEART.

2. WORLD THEREABOUTS, ME SEE HE REALLY-WANT TAKE-CARE.
SOMETIMES MY HEART TIRED, BUT ME DEPRESSED NEVER.
ME KNOW-THAT HE LEAD"over time", WHILE TROUBLE SEEM LIKE STORM.
ME WAIT"over time" EXCITED, LOOK-FORWARD COME-TO-earth PAH. Refrain

3. (2h)YOU CHRISTIAN, GO-AHEAD HAPPY. EXPRESS SHOW-TO-God GOD THRILLED.
FOREVER HALLELUJAH, JESUS CHRIST HE KING.
IF (2h)YOU ASK GOD HELP-you-all, HIS+ REFUSE NEVER.
NONE OTHER EQUAL HIS LOVE. HIMSELF TRUE~BIZ KIND. Refrain


Notes: KNOW-THAT - Starts like KNOW but twists and descends, looking almost like DON'T-KNOW except the hand twists down at the end.

CONVERSE - CONVERSATION, (2h)[1], alt. move back and forth at chin.

God-GIVE-TO-me - GIVE but moves from upward part of DS to signer.

REALLY-WANT - WANT but swivels back and forth at elbow to show intensity.

INSIDE-SELF - INSIDE held next to chest.

GO-AHEAD - (2h)[B^ dot], POs ><, FOs away, move forward in a jerk.

HIS+ is used in the sense of "that's the way He is".

TRUE~BIZ - TRUE + S-BUSINESS.

Lyrics:

1. I serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today;
I know that He is living, whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him He's always near.

Refrain: He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.

2. In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And tho' my heart grows weary, I never will despair.
I know that He is leading thro' all the stormy blase;
The day of His appearing will come at last.

3. Rejoice, rejoice, O Christians, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him, the Help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.
