The Old Account Was Settled Long Ago

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
There was a time on earth
When in the books of Heaven
An old account was standing
For sins yet unforgiven

June Carter:
My name was at the top
And many things below
But I went unto the keeper
And I settled long ago

Johnny: Long ago
June: Down on my knees
Johnny: Long ago
June: I settled it all
Both: Yes, the old account was settled long ago
Johnny: And the record's clear today
For He washed my sins away
Both: And the old account was settled long ago

June:
Well, the old account was large
And growing every day
And I was always sinning
And I never tried to pray

Johnny:
But when I looked ahead
And saw such pain and woe
Well, I knew I better get it settled
And I settled it long ago

Johnny: Long ago
June: Down on my knees
Johnny: Long ago
June: I settled it all
Both: Yes, the old account was settled long ago
Johnny: And the record's clear today
For He washed my sins away
Both: And the old account was settled long ago

Johnny: Now sinners seek the Lord
Repent of all your sins
This He has commanded
Both: If we would enter in

Johnny: And then if you should live
Both: A 100 years below
Well, you know you’ve got it settled
Cause you settled it long ago

Johnny: Long ago
June: Down on my knees
Johnny: Long ago
June: I settled it all
Both: Yes, the old account was settled long ago
Johnny: And the record's clear today
For He washed my sins away
Both: And the old account was settled long ago
