Psalm 23 in ASL

Here is a video of gestures for Psalm 23.
At the request of tutors for the older students, I’m using exclusively signs from ASL – no simple gestures. Using these signs with all ages of students makes it easy to review at home. If some are too difficult for the youngest students, omit one or two and focus on the key words.  The site Signing Savvy is very helpful for seeing a clear demonstration of individual words.
Psalm 2 3 Lord Shepherd I not want
He Makes Lie Pastures (fields) He Leads Beside Water
He Soul He Leads Paths Righteousness His Name
Even though I Walk Valley Death I Fear No Evil Thy (He) Rod Thy (He) staff comfort

Thou table in the presence of enemies Thou head cup overflows

Goodness mercy follow days life dwell house Lord forever

Please note that, like many other languages, ASL is not sequenced like English. We’re just using ASL gestures here to expose children to some signing vocabulary as well as to aid them in memorizing this Bible verse.
