Even Great Contrasts Depend on Faith

A grain of mustard Smaller than the eye can see, With faith as, can move mountains. Revered for all time, Mighty redwood warriors grow. Attaining great age and size. Rabbits with great speed, Could win a race if challenged. Usually stop and nibble. Slow moving turtles, With all odds against their win, Use that grain of mustard seed!
