YOU-rt LEAD ME STEP-BY-STEP
AND ME FOLLOW EVERY-DAY FROM-NOW-ON.


Notes: The signs between "||:" and ":||" are to be repeated.

ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.

REALLY-WANT - WANT but shaken back and forth to show intensity.

STEP-BY-STEP - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs away, DH is held ahead of NDH, then NDH leapfrogs over DH, and DH over NDH, with a slight pause after each step. For a QuickTime movie of this sign, see ASL browser - procedure. Note that the pauses are not shown in the movie.

Lyrics:

||: O God, You are my God,
And I will ever praise You.
O God, You are my God,
And I will ever praise You.

I will seek you in the morning,
And I will learn to walk in your ways,
And step by step you'll lead me,
And I will follow you all of my days. :||

And I will follow You all of my days.
And I will follow You all of my days.
And step by step you’ll lead me,
And I will follow you all of my days.
