He is well-published in global music, including Giving Voices to Asian Christians (VDM Verlag, 2008). He is also a prolific composer of hymnody.

Swee Hong has recently published his new book Lovin’ on Jesus: A Concise History of Contemporary Worship (Abingdon Press, 2017), co-authored by Lester Ruth. Swee Hong also serves as the director of both the Master of Sacred Music Program and the chapel program at Emmanuel College.
