A closer Look at Lyrics Ebenezer 1 Samuel 7:12 Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far has the LORD helped us." An Ebenezer was an unpolished stone erected as a memorial. In the song, the author is

raising a stone of remembrance of what God has done for him. A closer Look at Lyrics Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help I'm come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Hither- old way of saying coming towards something.

O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be! Let thy grace Lord, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. We see fetter as an image of slavery, as something bad. This fetter binds us to a loving God. Reminds me of Daryls image of Living Sacrifice. A closer Look at Lyrics

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here's my heart, Lord take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above. Seal- a legal stamp We are being set apart, our legal status has changed. Come Thou Fount Traditional
