Save from What?

One of our childrens' favorite bed-time songs is Rock of Ages. Matt was taking time this evening to explain again the words of the song:

Rock of ages cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee
Let the water and the blood
From thy wounded side which flowed
Be of sin the double cure
Save from wrath and make me pure

When he came to the last line and began to explain the meaning of "wrath" to the girls Hannah interrupted. Always dreading the coming bed-time, Hannah exclaimed, "Save from wrath? I thought it was 'Save from rest!'"


  1. Yes—whenever we talk about the coming new creation Hannah loves to remind us with intense anticipation that there will be no more night (Rev 21:25).
