“Ebenezer” was composed in 1896 and first published in 1897. It was named after Ebenezer Chapel in Rhos, Pontardawe, Wales but is sometimes alternately referred to as Ton-y-Botel (English: Tune in a Bottle), due to a whimsical myth suggesting its discovery in a bottle. Composer Ralph Vaughan Williams considered it one of the greatest hymn tunes ever written.

Thomas John Williams (1869 - 1944), was born in Ynysmeudwy, Glamorganshire, Wales. He earned an Associate degree at the Tonic Sol-Fa College (A.T.S.C.) in 1897 and served as organist at Mount Elim Chapel in Pontardawe from 1888 to 1903. During this time he additionally worked as an engine stoker and as a hewer (digger) in a coal mine. From 1903 to 1911, Williams served as organist at Zion Chapel in Llanelli while transitioning to a career in the insurance business. He maintained an insurance career throughout his tenure as organist at Calfaria Chapel in Llanelli from 1913 to 1931.
