Old Account Was Settled Long Ago

There was a time on Earth when in the books of Heaven
That an Old Account was standin' for sins yet unforgiven
My name was at the top there was many things below
But I went unto the keeper and I settled it long ago

Long ago,yes long ago I said the Old Account was settled long ago
And my 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
I was always sinnin' and I never tried to pray
But when I looked ahead and saw such pain and woe
Well I thoguht I'd better get it settled, so I settled it long ago

Long ago, long ago Yes the Old Account was settled long ago
And my record's clear today 'cause he washed my sins away
And The Old Account was settled long ago

Now sinner seek the Lord, and repent of all your sins
'Cause this He commanded if you should 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

Long ago, long ago Yes the Old Account was settled long ago
And my record's clear today 'cause he washed my sins away
And The Old Account was settled long ago
