What Are They Doing In Heaven Today?-Washington Phillips
Self-accompanied on Phonoharp and Celestaphone

SPOKEN: What are they doing in Heaven today? I don't know, boy, but it's my business to stay here and sing about it.

REFRAIN: What are they doing in Heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Peace, it bounds like the 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're gone up to Heaven, but I wants to know
What are they doing there now?

REFRAIN: Oh, what are they doing in Heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Peace, it bounds like the river, they say
But what are they doing there now?

There's some whose hearts was burdened with care
They passed their moments through sighting [sic] and tears
But they clung to the cross with trembling and fear
But what are they doing there now?

REFRAIN: What are they doing in Heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Oh, peace, it bounds like the river, they say
But what are they doing there now?

There's some whose bodies was bursted full of disease
Their citizen and doctors couldn't give them much ease
But they suffered until death brought a final release
But what are they doing there now?

REFRAIN: Oh, what are they doing in Heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Peace, it bounds like the river, they say
But what are they doing there now?

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

REFRAIN: What are they doing in Heaven today,
Where sin and sorrow are all done away?
Peace, it bounds like the river, they say
What are they doing there now?
