A very special thanks to Esther's daughter Rebekah Mui for blessing us with her lovely cello playing. It truly added so very much to the song :-) Music written, produced, and performed by Esther Mui ( piano, keyboard, organ, vocals ), all for the glory of God. http://www.m-csn.com/esthermui.htm
Some of Esther's early musical influences were Hillsong, Geron Davis, Israel Houghton, Ron Kenoly, Alvin Slaughter, Scott Wesley Brown, Paul Wilbur. She is also a fan of Fred Hammond ( thanks to stack45ny :-) ). "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 I worked on (which was Psalm 130) to the completion of the last one (Psalm 133), I have not ceased to be amazed, for the Lord has given me melody after melody to fit His Words. I believe this is because we, the church of Jesus Christ, are entering into a season when these psalms will become more and more relevant, as we look forward to our Lord's return. (Please click here to read more on Songs of Ascents)." "I thank my pastor, Ps. Lee Shaw Ming, for allowing the Lord to 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 Scripture songs. (Hearing you sing them week after week gave me the encouragement to continue writing.) I thank my husband, KW Mui, 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 kids (Rebekah and Samuel) for their endless support and love. I thank my friends (in particular Pastor Wah Lok, Catherine Wong, and my sister, Grace Soon) for their feedback and encouragement. I thank my co-producer, sound engineer and "manager", stack45ny, for believing in my music, and for the hours spent on working on these songs and videos. (The Lord bless you richly for your labor of love to see many blessed by these songs). 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." -Esther Mui. Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
