Psalm 23 Hand Motions

Hand Motions to Help Remember Psalm 23:


If you are confused, you can watch videos of these signs at the web site.
1 The Lord is my shepherd. He gives me everything I need. (1. point to yourself and 2. Need: close hand and make a hook with your pointer, nod (yes) with you hand)
2 He lets me lie down in fields of green grass. (Grass: curve fingers, tap the bottom your chip with the heel of the right hand.)
He leads me beside quiet waters. (Water: Make a “W” with your three longest fingers, tap the index finger on your lips several times)
3 He gives me new strength. (Strong: curve your arms to show bicep muscles and close your fists)
He guides me in the right paths (Path: Make a “W” with your three longest fingers of both hands. With your hands parallel show a path curving back and forth out from your body)
for the honor of his name. (1. Point to Heaven and 2. Name: On both hands have you index and middle fingers out and together and then have the right middle finger side tap on top of the left hands index finger side.)
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, (1. walk: fingers walk and 2. Dark: Cover your face with the back of both hands. Hands cross in front of your face.)
I will not be afraid. (1. Shake head no and 2. Afraid: Hands spread in wide in front of your chest and look afraid.)
You are with me. (1. Point to Heaven and 2. Me: Point to yourself.)
Your shepherd’s rod and staff comfort me. (Comfort: Rub the back of one hand in the palm of the other and then repeat with the other hand -both palms should be towards your body.)
5 You prepare a feast for me right in front of my enemies. ( Eat: put your finger tips together and tap your lips several times)
You pour oil on my head. ( Oil: Flat left hand towards you, Right hand shows a drip from the bottom of the left)
My cup runs over. (Cup: the left hand is up and flat like a table, the right hand is shaped like a cup and is placed on the left)
6 I am sure that your goodness and love (1. Point to Heaven and 2. Love: make fists with both hands and cross your arms across your chest)
will follow me all the days of my life. (Life: Two “L-hands, pulled up in front of your chest)
And I will live in the house of the Lord forever. (Forever: Index finger, towards you, makes a circle and then changes to a “y-hand”(thumb and pinky finger out the rest closed) and moves away from you)
