I was talking to Todd Agnew once about hymns, and he mentioned “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” and the line “Here I raise my Ebenezer”. Most people who sing that don’t even know what it means, Todd said, and don’t take enough time to understand they words to the songs they sing. When I and asked him to explain what the line meant, he told me to look it up myself.

So today, in honor of Todd Agnew, who is not just an artist but a teacher, share a hymn or spiritual song you sing but have no idea what it’s actually about.
