Years ago, God led His people,
usually through His own man.
He led them through the sea
and then the wilderness to the promised land.
Whenever men would sin,
God’s man would plead with sacrifice
for God to forgive His people,
and that would suffice.
Then one day jealousy
caused us to covet other nations.
We wanted a king so much
that we sacrificed Godly relations.
Through Saul, David, and Solomon
we learned how weak a man can be.
Through the kings of other nations,
we learn of cruel tyranny.
America is blessed to be king free,
but still relies on a man.
When will we ever learn
it is God we need to take our hand?
Praise God for King Jesus
who came to fix everything,
and praise God for the reality
that we don’t need another king!
