EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
BODY-CENTER QUIET, SMALL, INSIDE-SELF (2h)#ALL,
REMIND-us US WHAT RIGHT HOW? SONG.
DURING (<) STORM, (>) RAIN, (<) SORROW, (>) PAIN,
STILL WE PATIENT SING.
HELP MY FEAR CALM-DOWN. HELP MY CRY STOP.
YEARS-AND-YEARS WE PATIENT SING.
Notes: BODY-CENTER - [B^] makes small circle around and lands on midchest.
INSIDE-SELF - The FT of [C] are held against the chest and stuff the FT of [O^] into the [C] twice.
(2h)#ALL - (2h)[A], POs ><, FOs up, are held at shoulder height and move away while opening to (2h)[L].
REMIND-us - Tap shoulder with FT of [B^].
SORROW - SAD"over time".
FEAR - (2h), POs away, FOs up, hands are held far from body and move back to body in a wavy pattern.
YEARS-AND-YEARS - (2h)[S], POs > signer, FOs ><, DH is swung in small circles parallel to the chest and held over the NDH hand, finally landing on the NDH fist.
Voice still and small, deep inside all,
I hear you call, singing.
In storm and rain, sorrow and pain,
still we'll remain singing.
Calming my fears, quenching my tears,
through all the years, singing.
