EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
1. ME PATIENT, WAIT"over time" LORD ANSWER.
HE-rt LOOK-DOWN, PAH ANSWER ME.
HE-rt LIFT-UP ME FROM PIT:
INSIDE HAVE STICKY GROUND.
Refrain: ME WILL SING"over time" SOMETHING NEW. (x2)
HOW LONG CONTINUE"over time" MY SONG? (x2) HOW LONG (x4) CONTINUE"over time" SONG?
2. MY FEET, HE-rt PLACE-ON-SURFACE~ROCK.
MY WALK HE-rt SUPPORT.
MANY PEOPLE WITNESS.
MANY WILL SEE AND alt.HEAR. Refrain
Notes: ME - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
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.
LIFT-UP - (2h)[B], PO down are held high and swoop down while supinating and then rise up again as if helping something mature and the hands continue up and FTs are directed > Heaven.
PIT - VALLEY.
GROUND - (2h)[O^], POs up, FOs away, are held in together in place while thumbs rub against FTs.
PLACE-ON-SURFACE~ROCK - (2h)[S], NDH PO down, FO away, is held out and DH PO > NDS, FO away, places something on the dorsal (back) side of NDH + (without moving NDH) [A] strikes dorsal side to sign ROCK.
WITNESS -  touches under eye while head moves down.
1. I waited patiently for the Lord.
He inclined and heard my cry.
He lift me up out of the pit,
out of the miry clay.
Refrain: I will sing, sing a new song (2x)
How long to sing this song? (2x)
How long (X4) to sing this song?
2. He set my feet upon a rock,
made my footsteps firm.
Many will see.
many will see and hear. Refrain
