Led by God allied with the tremendous efforts of more than 30 volunteers, the hymns CD named "Re-Start" was finished on 9 Nov 05. Although we are not professional musicians, this product shows our best efforts to glorify God, after receiving enormous grace from Him during the whole production process.

Making a CD is a huge job and takes great team work. This project involved composing melody, arranging accompaniment, writing lyrics, inviting singers, recording and mixing, editing articles, preparing CD cover graphic design, mass production and promotion, etc. I would like to express my gratitude to all singers for their contributions and those who provided valuable comments on it, especially Mr. Ho Kin Kei and Ms Rose Choi, Ms Cheung Suk Yee, Rev. Lee Lap Yan and Ms Rainy Tsang.

At the beginning, I hesitated to produce this hymn CD as the melodies were appealing. I was surprisingly overwhelmed by Mr. KK Ho's gift of transforming one of the few pieces into some fascinating music. Afterwards, comments and critiques became valuable assets for me to continue my work. The invaluable assistance of Ms Rose Choi in adding lyrics, arranging singers and monitoring recording sessions overcame my weaknesses in these aspects. Her contributions remind me that "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" - Philippians 4:13.

I am also delighted that I could write the lyrics for a few pieces, although my Chinese writing skills are not that good. Now, I truly experienced what is written in Corinthians2 4:7 "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us".

Last but not the least, I hope you will enjoy the work and find the songs useful for praising our mighty God. Hallelujah.

因著神的帶領和我們三十多個弟兄姊妹的努力,「從新開始」現代聖詩創作集終於在本年十一月九日面世。
縱然我們不是專業的音樂家,但在整個製作過程中卻大大的蒙神恩待和保守,以至今天這歌集能夠榮耀神,
也顯出了我們為神所付出的努力。





製作光碟是一項須要總動員的艱巨任務。
當中的工作包括作曲、編曲、填詞、邀約歌者、錄音、混音、編輯、計設CD封套、大量生產和推廣等等。
我謹在此多謝所有歌者的貢獻,以及多謝多位曾經提供了寶貴意見的人士,
他們包括何建基先生、蔡家加小姐、
張孰儀老師李立仁牧師和曾孰珍小姐。







最初,我乃因著一些優美的旋律而戰戰兢兢地嘗試製作這歌集。令我深感詫異的是,
我其中一首歌曲的旋律,經何建基先生編曲後,竟然成了動聽的樂章。
其後,別人寶貴的評語和意見,都成了我不斷改進的動力。
蔡小姐在補詞、安排歌者、監督錄音等事項上都補了我的不足之處,
她的貢獻令我想起腓立比書四章十三節所說的:「我靠著那加給我力量的,凡事都能作。」







我的中文文筆雖然不好,但也能完成部分的歌詞,這是我深感欣喜的。
這叫我真正經歷到哥林多後書四章七節的話:「我們有這寶貝放在瓦器裡,
要顯明這莫大的能力是出於神,不是出於我們。」



最後,盼望你享受這歌集,並且當中的歌曲能助你更深的敬拜神。哈利路亞,讚美主!
