Notes: UPRIGHT - Elbow of [S], PO > NDS, FO up, is struck against the fingers of NDH [B] held like part of TABLE.
(2h)#ALL - (2h)[A], POs ><, FOs up, are held at shoulder height and move away while opening to (2h)[L].
HE - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
KISS-FIST - Kiss the dorsal side (back) of hand to show you loves something other than a person.
KINDNESS - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs away, NDH is held close to heart and DH circles around it.
OVERFLOW - , PO down, FO away, covers top of [S], PO > DS, FO away, and FT wiggle as the hand moves away, like a cup overflowing. For a QuickTime movie of this sign, see ASL browser - overflow.
APPEAR - SHOW-UP.
BREATH-DOWN - Look down to ctr and hold FTs of (2h)[O^] to nostrils, then move hands away to SPREAD.
ANGEL - (2h)[B^] touch FTs to shoulders, then arms extended and bent move slightly as if flying gently.
BREATH-IN - Look up to rt and reverse the process to show breath leaving God's nostrils and entering that of the angels'.
MAGIC - (2h)[O^], hold out index fingers which describe a circle in the air symmetrically, starting together, rising, separating, etc., and end with the index fingers retracting back to (2h)[O^] and then open to (2h)[5^].
KNOW-THAT - Starts like KNOW but twists and descends, looking almost like DON'T-KNOW except the hand twists down at the end.
BOW-DOWN - (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]".
SHIELD - [S] is held as if holding shield and FT of  traces a circle where the shield would be.
REALLY-WANT - WANT but shaken back and forth to show intensity.
Lyrics (Psalm 33:4-5, 6, 9, 18-19, 20, 22):
Response: Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.
Upright is the word of the LORD,
and all his works are trustworthy.
He loves justice and right;
of the kindness of the Lord the earth is full.
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made;
by the breath of his mouth all their host.
For he spoke, and it was made;
he commanded, and it stood forth.
See, the eyes of the LORD are upon those who fear him,
upon those who hope for his kindness,
To deliver them from death
and preserve them in spite of famine.
Our soul waits for the LORD,
who is our help and our shield.
May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us
who have put our hope in you.
