EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Refrain: ALLELUIA-lf! ALLELUIA-rt! ALLELUIA-ctr!
A. GO-AHEAD INFORM"all", LORD. YOUR-lf WORDS OFFER LIFE FOREVER.
B. LORD ANNOUNCE, (role play from lf) ME LIGHT FOR WORLD. ANYONE FOLLOW ME HAVE LIGHT FOR LIFE.
C. WE BOW-DOWN-TO YOU-lf, LORD CREATOR. WHY? IF PEOPLE HUMBLE, WEAK, YOU EXPLAIN YOUR KINGDOM.
D. GOD HIS-rt WORD BECOME HUMAN, HE-lf COME LIVE WITH US. FOR-FOR? ANYONE BELIEVE, THEY-rt BECOME GOD HIS-rt CHILDREN CAN.
ALLELUIA!-lf ALLELUIA!-rt ALLELUIA!-ctr - Twist > lf and sign Alleluia! (CLAP-HANDS~CELEBRATE + open hands into (2h) while lifting), twist > rt and sign Alleluia!, finally come back to center and sign Alleluia!
GO-AHEAD - (2h)[B^ dot], POs ><, FOs away, move forward in a jerk.
ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
LIGHT - Same sign as BRIGHT and CLEAR, that is, (2h)[O^], POs away, FOs up, open to (2h), while separating. For a QuickTime file of this sign, see ASL Pro: Light - 1.
ANYONE - [A dot], PO > NDS, FO up, twists rapidly at the wrist while moving in a horizontal circle. This means "anyone".
BOW-DOWN-TO - (2h)[B], POs away, FOs up, are held like the final position of GIVE-UP, then bend these arms twice while bowing at waist once. Note: This may seem a strange translation of "bless", but theologically I don't see how we can bless God. The Hebrew this concept comes from is "baruch" and is related to "birkayim (knees)", in other words "bend the knee [to God]".
CREATOR - MAKER.
KINGDOM - KING + , PO down, FO away, circles horizontally. For an animated gif of this sign, see Valley Bible Church - ASL dictionary: Kingdom.
HUMAN - H-BODY.
Refrain: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
A. Speak, O Lord, your servant is listening. You have the words of everylasting life.
B. "I am the Light of the world," says the Lord. "All who follow me shall have the light of life.
C. Blessed are you, O Lord of creation, revealing your kingdom to the humble and weak.
D. The Word of God came and lived here among us, so all who believe might be the children of God.
