What Is An Ebenezer?

What Is An Ebenezer?
"Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is such a familiar hymn.  Here is a Youtube playing the version by David Crowder BandBut have you listened to the words?  What in the world is an Ebenezer????  I'm afraid I missed that lesson in Sunday School.  Completely stuck, I resorted to the one way I knew to find the answer;  Google.I found out the word comes from the scripture in 1 Samuel 7:12 Then Samuel took a stone...
