Saturday's Song

“Prove me wrong”

Prove me wrong” is another powerful song by Mandisa which she wrote after her friend Lakisha died from cancer.

Mandisa poured everything she felt into the song; all her anger, grief and disappointment. It was her honest cry to God, questioning Him, asking for answers.

The song shows that there’s nothing wrong with pouring out all your thoughts and feelings out to God. Even the strongest Christian will doubt His love sometimes. But by His grace He will save us from this storm.

 

Prove Me Wrong

You could’ve healed her
You’ve done it before
You could’ve sent the angels down
And turned it around
Wouldn’t that have meant so much more?
Instead you took her
Left a young family behind
And I’m wondering where you are
You seem so far
While we’re all here asking why
And I’ve read your ways are higher
But I just don’t understand
Trying to hold onto my faith, but
It’s slipping through my hands

Prove me wrong
Prove me wrong
These waves will take me under
My heart will not get over
And this pain won’t make me strong
Prove me wrong

Would it be wrong if
I asked you for proof
I wish that I could just believe, without questioning
I’m just being honest with you
And they say your ways are better
But I still don’t understand
And you can’t hold me together
And this can’t be your perfect plan

Prove me wrong
Prove me wrong
All this pain
This sorrow in my heart
I can’t find my way out of the dark

Prove me wrong
Prove me wrong
You know my doubts and fears
I need to know you’re here
Still the storm that rages on
Or these waves will take me under
My heart will not get over
This pain won’t make me strong
Prove me wrong
Prove me wrong
