[Verse 1]
C                                               
There was a time on earth, when in the book of Heav'n
F                     C          G7
An old account was standing for sins yet unforgiv'n;
C                                        
My name was at the top, and many things below,
F                 C           G7          C
I went unto the Keeper, and settled long ago.

[Refrain] 
G7                             C
Long ago (down on my knees), long ago (I settled it all),
C                          D7         G7
Yes, the old account was settled long ago (Hallelujah!);
C                                     F              C
And the record's clear today, for He washed my sins away,
C                          G7          C
When the old account was settled long ago.
        
[Verse 2]
C                                               
The old account was large, and growing every day,
F                     C          G7
For I was always sinning, and never tried to pay;
C                                        
But when I looked ahead, and saw such pain and woe,
F                 C           G7          C
I said that I would settle, I settled long ago.

[Refrain] 
G7                             C
Long ago (down on my knees), long ago (I settled it all),
C                          D7         G7
Yes, the old account was settled long ago (Hallelujah!);
C                                     F              C
And the record's clear today, for He washed my sins away,
C                          G7          C
When the old account was settled long ago.

[Verse 3]
C                                               
When in that happy home, my Savior's home above,
F                     C          G7
I'll sing redemption's story, and praise Him for His love;
C                                        
I'll not forget that book, with pages white as snow,
F                 C           G7          C
Because I came and settled, and settled long ago.

[Refrain]  
G7                             C
Long ago (down on my knees), long ago (I settled it all),
C                          D7         G7
Yes, the old account was settled long ago (Hallelujah!);
C                                     F              C
And the record's clear today, for He washed my sins away,
C                          G7          C
When the old account was settled long ago.

[Verse 4]
C                                               
O sinner, trust the Lord, be cleansed of all your sin,
F                     C          G7
For thus He hath provided for you to enter in;
C                                        
And then if you should live a hundred years below,
F                 C           G7          C
Up there you'll not regret it, you settled long ago.
