I'd Rather Suffer the Pais and Afflictions

Post by AKMA » Sun Mar 20, 2011 7:17 pm

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I recall some of the words from a gospel track from a station I used to listen to twenty years ago. It goes this way:

I've decided I'm gonna live holy
I've decided I'm gonna live right
I've counted the cost, made up my mind
I'm gonna live for Christ

Now living holy in this world means suffering
But that's all, that's all right
'Cause I'd rather suffer
I'd rather suffer the pains and afflictions
Than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season
I'd rather suffer the pains and afflictions of the righteous

And fades out with repeated refrains of "I'm going all the way [with Jesus]"

Can anyone help identify this track for me?

I asked two years ago, but still no result; does any new visitor have a suggestion?

Time for my annual re-check - surely someone else must have heard this song!

Hi ACMA,
In my searching I came across your blog. This is a ridiculously long shot but
have you tried contacting that New Haven community gospel radio station
you heard this mass-choir recording on in the 80's ?
I'll be praying we can find this

It's been more than a year this time - bump!

In case Nancy is still reading, I'm extremely dubious that anyone kept logs from the 1980s, but I'll do some legwork on this and see if anything turns up.

I will certainly post the answer here if I ever learn it.

Grace and peace,
AKMA
