EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Refrain: COME-ON, WE SHOULD CELEBRATE. COME-ON
WE SHOULD CELEBRATE WHILE WE GO TEMPLE, LORD HIS-rt HOUSE.
1. THEY-rt INVITE ME GO TEMPLE
#DO-DO, ME CELEBRATE.
JERUSALEM, WE PAH ENTER YOUR-ctr GATE.
2. WE SHOULD PRAY JERUSALEM HAVE PEACE.
PRAY++ PEOPLE THEY-rt LOVE YOU-ctr SUCCEED WILL.
PRAY++ PEACE ARRIVE INSIDE YOUR-ctr CIRCULAR-WALL.
3. WITH MY FRIENDS HAVE FAITH,
ME SAY, LORD, SEND PEACE.
BECAUSE TEMPLE FOR LORD OUR GOD THERE-ctr,
ME PRAY YOUR-ctr BENEFIT.
Notes: COME-ON - (2h)[B^] move in circles pivoting at the wrists to beckon someone to do something.
TEMPLE - T-CHURCH.
THEY - 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.
PAH! - Like SUCCEED but "pah" is mouthed and has the meaning of "at long last". For a QuickTime movie of this sign, see ASL browser - finally.
CIRCULAR-WALL - (2H)[Bb], POs away, FOs up, hands are touching, separate and return further away (moving in a circle) to show a circular wall.
FRIENDS - Interlocked (2h)[X] move in a horizontal circle.
FAITH - Like THINK TRUST but with elevated hands and eyes to show the trust is spiritual.
Refrain: Let us go rejoicing, let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
1. I rejoiced when they said,
"Let us go to the house of the LORD."
We have set foot within your gates, O Jerusalem.
2. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
May those who love you prosper!
Peace within your walls.
3. In the faith of these friends
I say, "Peace be with you."
Because of the house of the Lord, our God,
I pray for your good.
