SCADS-OF - (2h)[5:], POs down, FOs away, move forward to show many beings.
MANY-WATCH-me - (2h), POs down, FOs away, turn hands so that the FO is > signer's face, then hands move in vertical circles normal (perpendicular) to the torse.

1. My vows I will make before the ones who fear the Lord.
The poor shall eat and have their fill.
They will serve the Lord, all who bless the Lord,
Hearts filled with joy that lasts forever.
2. Proclaim to a people who are yet to be born
The justice, the faithfulness of God.
My soul shall live for the Lord; my children will serve
The Lord, faithful in every generation.
