Notes: YOU - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.
SUPREME - (2h)[A], FOs away, DH starts below NDH and arcs around it until it is on top.
KIND - (2h)[B^], POs ><, FOs away, NDH is held close to heart and DH circles around it.
GO-AHEAD - (2h)[B^ dot], POs ><, FOs away, move forward in a jerk.
UPRIGHT - Elbow of [S], PO > NDS, FO up, is struck against the fingers of NDH [B] held like part of TABLE.
TAKE-OFF - Like DEVELOP but moves quickly and abruptly with a "po".
IDEA-LIKE - A blending where IDEA has a [Y] instead of an [I] in anticipation of LIKE which is signed smoothly right afterwards.
PALM-TREE - NDH [5^] grabs the elbow of [3^] and the DH which is held straight up but bent at wrist, twists at the wrist.
LEBANON - (2h)[index, middle finger and thumb], POs away, FOs up, close repeatedly, like the ASL sign for NO while descending and separating. For a film of this sign, click on Lebanon - لبنان. (< cedar tree on flag.)
alt.PUT-IN-PLACE - (2h)[S], POs ><, FOs away, put things in random places.
TEMPLE - T-CHURCH.
PERKY - Fists are held close to chest and elbows swing out slightly twice.

Lyrics (Psalm 92:2-3, 13-14, 15-16):
Response: Lord, it is good to give thanks to you.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praise to your name, Most High,
to proclaim your kindness at dawn
and your faithfulness throughout the night. Response
The just one shall flourish like the palm tree,
like a cedar of Lebanon shall he grow.
They that are planted in the house of the Lord
shall flourish in the courts of our God. Response
They shall bear fruit even in old age;
vigorous and sturdy shall they be,
declaring how just is the Lord,
my rock, in whom there is no wrong. Response
