    No earthly friend being near me, interpose
    No deathly angel 'twixt my face aud thine,
    But stoop Thyself to gather my life's rose,
    And smile away my mortal to Divine. No one is lonely on death bed.. believe me when you get there, God is gonna be thy comfort.. And thee will rejoice and wine up thy tears with smile.

    To die In Christ is to attain fruit of Life tree... Death is beautiful and no one is lonely on death bed...For Almighty so Powerful is with one at the time of death.. (Report) Reply

    Christ said on the cross, 'My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? ' The line:

    By thy forsaken Sonship in the red
    Drear wine-press

    is a reference to his crucifixion. Since the wine is the symbol of Christ's blood in communion, the cross is the 'Red drear wine-press.'
