VIDEO: I Am a Child of God in World Sign Languages
In preparation for General Conference, I had the idea to ask Deaf members around the world to send in videos of themselves signing I Am a Child of God. Enjoy!
This is my first collaboration project on my Sign Polyglot channel. I hope you enjoy it! I felt like it would be good preparation for General Conference this weekend. #GeneralConference #ShareGoodness
Check out the original music video by @The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of this arrangement at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOrcq.... I calculated up and it probably took me about 120 hours to put it together over the last month so I probably won't do this often, whew. :)
This song has been a favorite of mine since I was 3 years old and in Primary. It reminds me that I have Heavenly Parents and am on this world for a reason. Feel free to share your favorite lyric in the comments below! (Please be kind and respectful about everyone's beliefs in the comments. Thank you!!)
FUNNY STORY: Just finished and published the video and realized I forgot to put myself in it...LOL! Soooo...I'll make sure I remember my video next time. :D
Need CC? I have added subtitles for these languages so far: Cebuano [ceb] English [en] Spanish [es] French [fr] Hungarian [hu] Japanese [ja] Portuguese [pt] Russian [ru] Tonga [to]
We have a conference about Jesus Christ and the restoration of His gospel every six months. It's free and everyone is welcome to attend. :) It is LIVE broadcasted in nearly 100 languages (an incredible feat as even the United Nations is typically live interpreted in only 8 languages). You can watch the broadcast in ASL at https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/b... and click on the English, Spanish or Portuguese Closed Captions if you'd like. Check out all of the ASL content at https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/s....
I could not have done it without the following signers. They worked hard to send in videos of them signing the entire song. (I just wish I could have used more of each video!)

I Am A Child of God Lyrics:
1. I am a child of God, And he has sent me here, Has given me an earthly home With parents kind and dear.
[Chorus] Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, Help me find the way. Teach me all that I must do To live with him someday. [Verse 1 Repeats]
2. I am a child of God, And so my needs are great; Help me to understand his words Before it grows too late. [Chorus] Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, Help me find the way. Teach me all that I must do To live with him someday.

I have added 7 closed captioning languages myself. If you'd like to help add languages (please!) you can add them at Amara (https://amara.org/en/videos/Tw0VkUGie...) and use the lyrics here: https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/m....
Please write me at email@example.com to ask if you'd like to publish this elsewhere. Feel free to user up to 30 seconds of the video for any highlights, blog posts, etc. The goal is for this to be used to uplift so please share it far and wide!
