The Old Account Was Settled Long Ago Lyrics

Well there was a time on Earth, when in the books of
Heaven
An old account was standing, for sins yet unforgiven
My name was at the top, and many things below
But I went unto the keeper, and settled it long ago.

Chorus
Long ago (down on my knees)
Long ago (I settled it all)
Yes, the old account was settled long ago, (Hallelujah!)
And the record's clear today,
Cause He washed my sins away,
And the old account was settled long ago.

Well the old account was large, and growin’ everyday
And I was always sinnin', and I never tried to pray
But when I looked to him and saw such pain and woe
Well I went unto the keeper, and settled it long ago

Chorus

Now sinner seek the Lord, repent of all your sins
'Cause this He has commanded, if you would enter in
And then if you should live a hundred years below
Well you know you got it settled, 'cause you settled it
long ago

Chorus
