A profound, rolling tune, EBENEZER, to which we sing "O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus", was traditionally called "Ton-Y-botel" (tune in a bottle) because of a legend that it was found in a bottle along the Welsh Coast. However, EBENEZER actually came from the second movement of an anthem ("Goleu yn y Glyn" or "Light in the Valley") by Thomas John Williams. EBENEZER was named for the chapel in Rhos, Pontardawe which Williams attended at the time he composed the tune. The word is Hebrew for "Stone of Help". It first appeared as a hymn tune in 1890 in a Welsh hymnal entitled Llawlyfn Moliant.
