The Old Account Was Settled Long Ago Lyrics

(F.M. Graham)

Long ago (down on my knees)

Long ago (I setted 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.

There was a time on earth,

When in the book of Heav'n

An old account was standing

For sins yet unforgiv'n;

My name was at the top,

And many things below,

I went unto the keeper,

And settled long ago.

Long ago (down on my knees)

Long ago (I setted 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.

The old account was large,

And growing ev'ry 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,

I settled long ago.

Long ago (down on my knees)

Long ago (I setted 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.

When in that happy home,

My Saviour's home above,

I'll sing redemption's story,

And praise Him for His love;

I'll not forget that book,

With pages white as snow,

Because I came and settled,

And settled long ago.

Long ago (down on my knees)

Long ago (I setted 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.
