Before you’re done Christmas-ing: Polish sign language anyone?
Dec 27, 2018
How cool is this? My friend Piotr Sikora has created this video of “When the Son of God Was Born” in cooperation with a Silent Choir of Silesian University, and recorded it in a lovely church in Cieszyn. Enjoy!
(I recognized a few of the signs, but not many… and I know the words! Well, kinda… in English anyway. 😉 )

Omigosh! This is so precious, so filled with the Spirit! I cried through almost the entire song, because I sign. There isn’t a language that is more beautiful than sign language, no matter the country. I truly loved the way this was choreographed and the genuine love each participant emulated. Thank you so much for sharing this incredibly touching gift, as well as all of the wonderful, awe-inspiring music you have gifted to us throughout all of these years, Sally! You are a genuine treasure to everyone who has ever been blessed by your music. Happy New Year to you and all of your loved ones!
Sally: I don’t know you, but could hug you for sending that ‘to me’. We have a daughter who is prolific in ASL. She served a mission to the deaf in Florida and California (if you can believe!). Three other of our children can also sign. One studied in college and the two sons had good friends who were deaf, so they learned to converse quite well. As I watched & listened to this video, my heart was full. I ‘shared’ it to my Facebook page because there are deaf friends who will love this….as will the rest of our family. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful musical talent. I heard “Will You Come to the Manger”–was so touched by it that I cried–and ran off a copy of what I thought my husband and I could sing for Christmas. FYI, Jacosa Ainu’u is my niece….so we inherited that wonderful Tupua when they married!!! Have you met them? At least you have seen the video that they made of your song…right? Unfortunately, my voice is in the tenor/baritone range and Paul is a definite bass. We live in the middle of nowhere–literally–in Idaho, attend a tiny Branch in Stanley, so there was nobody to sing it for our Christmas Program….that we share with the village of Stanley. I am 82 and he just turned 86 (officially old now!). I hope to become more familiar with other of your music. He and I ARE the music in our Branch of about 20. Neither of us are great musicians, but we play and lead….and the members think we’re great. What more can we ask? Have a wonderful New Year….all of it!!!
So beautiful! I continue to be amazed at the abundant ways to feel God’s love. It comes through so many of His talented sons and daughters. Thank you Sally, for sharing yours with so many! We are truly blessed.
So sweet and calming. Wonderful experience watching this.
I know nothing about sign language or Polish music, but really liked it.
I cannot read the sign language but I can FEEL the love and emotion behind it! and the music is so beautiful!
Sally, I love your music and I am wondering if you have anything for the youth to sing for the 2019 theme. “If ye love me keep my commandments.”
This is beautiful! I don’t know the words and I don’t know the signs, but my heart was touched. I hope to hear it in English and see the signs I know.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
