What Are They Doing In Heaven Today Lyrics

What are they doing in heaven today?
I don't know boy
But it's my biz to say it and sing about it

Chorus:
What are they doing in heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Peace abounds like a river, they say.
What are they doing there now?

I'm thinking of friends whom I used to know,
Who lived and suffered in this world below
But they've gone off to heaven, but I want to know
What are they doing there now?

Oh, what are they doing in heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Peace abounds like a river, they say.
But what are they doing there now?

There's some whose hearts were burdened with care
They paid for their moment to fighting and tears
But they clung to the cross with trembling and fear
But what are they doing there now?

(chorus)

And there's some whose bodies were full of disease
Physicians and doctors couldn't give them much ease
But they suffered 'til death brought a final release
But what are they doing there now?

(chorus)

There's some who were poor and often despised
They looked up to heaven with tear-blinded eyes
While people were heedless and deaf to their cries
But what are they doing there now?

Watching ELIZABETHTOWN the movie. looking at the score/playlist. As I really liked all the music, saw a song titled "What are they doing in Heaven today." As I just lost my husband 5 months ago come the 27th July. The monthly anniversary is very emotional time for me, the words resonated with me. Since I had never heard of the song I decided to look it up. It soothes me to wander how he's doing in Heaven. Interesting that the song being by a black man in the 1920's. I saw some later renditions but they just didn't do it justice. I like the original way better in its stripped down real version. That's all. Respectively. Linda
