EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Refrain: TOGETHER YOU, LORD, ||: ME FIND MY PEACE. :||
1. MY HEART ARROGANT NOT. ME LOOK-DOWN YOU NOT. MY SOUL, FILLED-UP YOU. FEEL GENIUS A-TO-Z NOT. KNOW-THAT ME NOTHING-TO-IT COMPARE YOU. Refrain
2. MY SOUL QUIET. MY SOUL STAY QUIET. REALLY-WANT YOU IDEA~LIKE BABY REALLY-WANT MOTHER FEED. ME APPROACH YOU IDEA~LIKE CHILD. Refrain
Notes: Underlined prounouns (ME>, YOU>, HE) are honorific index (HON.-IX), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
ARROGANT - (2h)[L:], POs ><, FOs away, are held at forehead and suddenly expand. For a QuickTime movie of this sign, see ASL browser - brat.
LOOK-DOWN - (2h)[V^], PO > away, FO up, hands are held high and FT tip down to show the subject is "looking down" on something/someone.
FILLED-UP - [B], PO down, FO > NDS, is held close to body, starts rising from below waist and strikes chin in its rising.
GENIUS - (2h)[C], POs ><, FOs away, DH touches forehead on DS and NDH is put in front of and touches DH. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Genius.
A-TO-Z - , PO > signer, FO up, DH [A] - held at the thumb of the NDH and then moves > DS while tracing a [Z] at the little finger.
NOTHING-TO-IT - (2h)[F], POs away, FOs up, hands move slightly and symetrically from side to side.
REALLY-WANT - the sign WANT but shaken back and forth to show intensity.
IDEA~LIKE - a blending where IDEA has a [Y] instead of an [I] in anticipation of LIKE which - signed smoothly right afterwards.
FEED - EAT + (2h)[O^], POs up, FOs > person being fed, hands move away twice. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Feed.
APPROACH - (2h)[B], FOs up, DH PO away, ND is held in front of NDH and palm faces it, then both hands approach one another slightly.
Refrain: In you, O Lord, ||: I have found my peace. :||
1. My heart is not proud, my eyes not above you; You fill my soul. I am not filled with great things, nor with thoughts beyond me.
2. My soul is still, my soul stays quiet, longing for You like a weaned child in its mother's arms; so is my soul a child with You. Refrain (twice).
