I Will Be Thy King

I'm reading Francis Ridley Havergal every night. She selected the phrase in bold, but the whole thing is wonderful.

Hosea 13:8 - 10
I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them. O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help. I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?

How many leaders do we try to find? How many hopes beside Him Who stands beside us always?
