Parable of the Mustard Seed


Parable of the Mustard Seed: Mark 4.30-32

Mustard seed, tiny seed,

Sown in the ground,

Soon you’re the biggest plant, for miles around.

How green your leaves,

Don't they ever fade?

Birds of the air come to perch in your shade.

What of God’s kingdom?

Will it come with speed?

Unseen it grows up, just like the mustard seed.
