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.

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!
