Sunday's Song- The Old Account Was Settled

The Old Account Was Settled

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.
 

Refrain
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.


The old account was large, and growing 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, I settled long ago.
 

Refrain
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.


When in that happy home, my Savior'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.


Refrain

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.


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

Refrain
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.

What a great song. I haven't heard it but it is lovely.

How great to have 24 eggs in one day!! Woohoo, what are you going to do with all of those eggs? I get around 9-11 and I am swimming in eggs. I have been giving them to neighbors and family.

You have so much squash already, yahoo. Ours are starting to show some potential. It was actually a plant that showed up on its own so who knows, but there are little squashes on the plant... fingers crossed!

Hope you are having a great day and enjoying the summer!!

That's a great old hymn, Nancy- I haven't heard it in years! I remember the "Hee Haw quartet" singing that song once!
