play What Are They Doing in Heaven

from Living Ever-Lovin' LIVE

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

    What are they doing in heaven today?
    Where sin and sorrow have all gone away
    Peace abounds like a river, they say
    What are they doing there now?

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

    What are they doing in heaven today?
    Where sin and sorrow have all gone away
    Peace abounds like a river, they say
    What are they doing there now?

There's some who were poor and often despised
They looked up toward heaven with tear-blinded eyes
While people where heedless and deaf to their cries
What are they doing there now?
   
    What are they doing in heaven today?
    Where sin and sorrow have all gone away
    Peace abounds like a river, they say  
    What are they doing there now?
    What are they doing there now?
