Run, run so fast

Over fields and grass

At last, at last

We escaped from the trap

With the rabbit and the bear

And the sparrows of the air

Come one, come all

The hunter is gone

And this is our chance

To crawl under the wire

Through the darkest wood

On up to the mountain of fire

Where everything is free

In the light of the sun

Where every creature sings

Oh Lord, you rescued us all

Don’t listen to the snake

For he lies and he takes

Your hope, your faith

Away from you

But when the lion comes around

With his claw and his crown

Follow, follow

His every move

    General CommentBeautifully symbolic song of salvation in Jesus. My humble opinion shot at it:
    -Escaped from the trap = Escaped the trap of sin
    -With rabbit & bear & sparrows = creation (including animals) are under the fallen nature of sin as well, and will escape sin's corruption when Jesus comes again.
    -Craw under wire = I picture escaping a prison (literally a wire fence), references the escaping of Christians bondage in sin.
    -Through the darkest wood = apart from God is darkness (John chapter 1)
    -On mountain top of fire = represents God at Mt. Sinai, and specifically Christians ability to be in his presence because of Jesus like Moses at Sinai
    -Where everything is freeEEEEeeEEE= Jesus gives us the free gift of grace!!!!
    -In light of sun = Jesus is light of world (John 1) and will be the light at center of fully consummated kingdom when He returns again (Rev 21)
    - Where every creature sings, Lord you rescued us all = God will renew creation and believers bodies with Jesus second coming (see Romans 8:22)
    - Snake = devil, (Genesis 2) father of lies, wants to dissuade people from hope in Christ
    - Lion = Jesus
    - Claw and crown = His perfect judgement and reign
    - Follow, follow his every move = Philippians 2, be Christ's imitators
