Welcome / Introduction

Welcome and Shalom! This site is dedicated to worshiping YHWH our God with songs written straight out of the Bible. We, as a family, pray these songs will bless you, and help you hide God's Word in your hearts.

Together with our home church, our goal as a family is to return to worshiping God with His Word, with "Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual songs". We pray that the songs we produce may glorify God and encourage other families in the body of Christ to worship Him together with songs and praises from Scripture. The Word of God edifies and builds families together as one that they may serve Him.

Scripture songs have been a significant part of our lives for several years now. By singing God's Word, we are meditating and proclaiming the Living Word of God that has the power to not only transform lives but also to impart life. It is the very core of our existence for by God's Word, the world was created. John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

Wai and Esther have been married for over 22 years. They have 2 almost-adult children, Rebekah and Samuel. Grace is Esther's sister, a trained music teacher and vocalist who also serves as the choir director of her home church.

 


A Word From Esther...how it all began...

In June 2009, I was asked by my pastor to put music to scripture word for word, specifically to the 15 Songs of Ascents (Psalms 120 to 134). From the start of the first Psalm which I worked on (which was Psalm 130) to the completion of last one (Psalm 133), I have not ceased to be amazed, for the Lord gave me melody after melody to fit His words. I believe this is because we, the church of Jesus Christ, are entering into a season where these psalms will become more and more relevant, as we look forward to our Lord's return. (For a clearer understanding of the Songs of Ascents, please read the write-up by here: http://www.scripturesongsforworship.com/2012/06/songs-of-ascents.html). 

I thank my pastor, Ps. SM Lee, for allowing the Lord the use him to challenge me to the task. (Your feedback and guidance were crucial to keeping me on track.) I thank my church for enthusiastically learning and singing these psalms. (Hearing you sing them week after week gave me the encouragement to continue writing.) I specially thank my husband and soul-mate, KW Mui, for being very much a part of this project, and for providing me with all that I needed to work on these Scripture songs. (You were the first to have the vision that we would sing straight out of our Bibles!) I thank my children, Rebekah & Samuel, for their contribution, endless support and love. I thank my sister, Grace, for helping me with my vocals and diction, and for lending her voice. I thank my friends (in particular Pastor Wah Lok and Catherine Wong),  for their feedback and encouragement. Most of all, I thank my God, my Lord and Master, for seeing me fit to be a channel for what He wants to bless the body of Christ with.

Also a special thanks to Mr. Norbert for the use of the beautiful photos in the videos and thumbnails. The LORD bless you abundantly!

    1. Hi Esther,
      I wanted to let you know that I have enjoyed listening to your songs for some time now. It is really helpful how you have the scripture written so one can listed and read at the same time. When its hard to just read it is good to listen to your songs and still read.
      I have written scripture songs for many years but haven't put them on anything, I'm not very techy but would like to do it like you do. Any tips that you have would be appreciated. If God wills maybe I will figure out a way. Still I enjoy your songs and pictures so much.
      Thank you again! Karen Dial

  5. I have been looking for songs like these that you have written! Worship songs... Scripture songs. Music to let the Word wash over me as I listen... Scripture songs to learn and sing. I have been blessed by your freely giving also. This is how we are instructed to share, but it is truly rare. May you be blessed of the LORD with inspiration for more songs and strength to continue this work.

  11. Dear Esther & Wai, Grace and Samuel and Rebekah and all who love the Lord! Greetings from a 95 year old (counting inside time): We have been SO blessed by what the Lord has done and is doing through you to bless the Church on earth, specifically me, my daughter and Son-by-Love with whom I live. Pain is exhausting, but God is the strength of my life and my portion forever! Is it Grace's or Esther's voice singing? It is so pure and sweet and the Word is so healing and healthy. Esther, you have truly given us a Gift "for SUCH a TIME as THIS"! Love, Virginia from Virgina (in Wheaton)
