The Old Account Was Settled Long Ago Lyrics

1. There was a time, I know
When in the book of Heaven
An old account was standing
For sins yet unforgiven
My name was at the top
And many things below
But I went to the Keeper
And settled 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
For He washed my sins away
When the old account was settled long ago

2. The old account was large
And larger every day
For I was always sinning
And never tried to pay
But when I looked ahead
And saw such pain and woe
I said that I would settle
And settle long ago

3. When at the judgment bar
I stand before my King
And here, the book will open
And cannot find a thing
Then my heart will be glad
While tears of joy will flow
Because I had it settled
And settled long ago

4. O sinner, seek the Lord
Repent of all your sin
For thus He has commanded
If you would enter in
And then if I should live
A hundred years below
Up there, I'll not regret it
I settled long ago

Repeat Chorus
