Notes: 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.
YOU - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
SALVATION - S-FREE.
UPRIGHT - Elbow of [S], PO > NDS, FO up, is struck against the fingers of NDH [B] held like part of TABLE.
JUSTICE - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs up, tap FT while moving in a horizontal circle.
KIND - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs away, NDH is held close to heart and DH circles around it.

Refrain: To you, O Lord, I lift up, I lift up my soul, my God.
1. Your ways, O Lord, make known to me;
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truthm, for you are my God,
and for you I will wait.
2. Good and upright is the Lord;
he shows us the way.
He guides the meek to justice,
he teaches the humble to follow his ways.
3. Your way, O Lord,
is kindness to those who are true.
Your friendship is
with those who love you;
you reveal to them your Word.
