CREDITS:
Sign interpreter: Ah Yun, from Voibook Tech, Guangzhou, China 
Lyric adaptation and music performance: Rev. Heng Sure
Video edition: Peng Siqing, from Voibook Tech, Guangzhou, China (who also added subtitles and combined the two videos together)
* From Cliff Wang (Lifu Wang 王立夫), who has also been of help with this project: "The Sign Language in the video is called 'Chinese Sign Language' (CSL in short). It is the official sign language used in mainland China, different from the sign languages used in Taiwan."

From Janis: Steve Baughman sent word of this project to Rev. Heng Sure, who recorded it with wooden banjo in Mandarin Chinese. I then asked Heng Sure if he knew of any Chinese sign interpreters, and here we are! Art is so global, language of any sort shouldn't be a barrier to its enjoyment - especially music, the only "invisible art form". Music without borders!

BETTER TIMES WILL COME – ENGLISH/ CHINESE

Adapted for Mandarin by Rev. Heng Sure and Cliff Wang (Lifu Wang 王立夫)

Better times, better times will come. 明天,明天會更好,
Better times, better times will come. 明天,明天會更好,
When this world learns to live as one, 世界和諧行大同,
Oh, better times will come. 明天一定會更好。 

When we greet each dawn without fear,面對困難毫不畏懼,
Knowing loved ones soon will be near, 親朋好友不離不棄,
When the winds of war cannot blow any more,刀槍入庫馬放南山,
Oh, better times will come . 明天一定會更好。 

Better times, better times will come. 明天,明天會更好,
When this world learns to live as one, 世界和諧行大同,
Oh, better times will come. 明天一定會更好。

Though we live each day as our last, 生死轉瞬一息之間,
We know someday soon it will pass,  黑暗夜晚變換白天,
We will dance, we will sing in that never-ending spring, 感恩心聲大地回春,
Oh, better times will come.明天一定會更好。

Better times, better times will come. 明天,明天會更好,
Better times, better times will come.  明天,明天會更好,
When this world learns to live as one, 世界和諧行大同,
Oh, better times will come. 明天一定會更好。

When this world learns to live as one, 世界和諧行大同,
Oh, better times will come. 明天一定會更好。
