EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Refrain: ||: COME-ON, WE NEED GO LORD HIS-rt HOUSE, REJOICE. :||
1. ME THRILLED HEAR THEM-rt SAY,
(role play) COME-ON, WE NEED GO LORD HIS-rt HOUSE.

Notes: The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.
COME-ON - (2h)[B^] move in circles pivoting at the wrists to beckon someone to do something.
REJOICE - CELEBRATE.
ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
JERUSALEM - [B with thumbs flush with other fingers but not folded into palm], touches mouth and then pronates.
WALLS - (2h)[B], POs away, FOs up, hands twist while moving away and then close, as if mimicing a wall-in area.
PRAY - (2h)[B] press palms together and circle vertically normal (perpendicular) to the torso.
INSIDE-SELF - The FT of [C] are held against the chest and stuff the FT of [O^] into the [C] twice.
FRIENDS - Interlocked (2h)[X] move in a horizontal circle.
BE-WITH - TOGETHER.
KINDNESS - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs away, NDH is held close to heart and DH circles around it.
Refrain: ||: Come, let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord. :||
1. I rejoiced when I heard them say:
"Let us go to the house of the Lord."
And now our feet are standing
2. Pray for peace in Jerusalem,
Pray for peace in our homes,
and peace within us forever.
3. For the love of my family and friends,
may the peace of our God be with you.
For love of the house of the Lord,
I will pray that his kindness be with you.
