Isaiah 43:18-19.
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

Eliot's "Murder N T CaTdral." 4give us, O Lord, we acknowledge ourselves as type of T coMon man, Of T men & women who shut T dOr & sit by T fire; Who fear T bleSng of God, T lonelNeS of T night of God, T suRender required, T deprivation Nflicted; Who fear T Njustice of men leS than T justice of God; Who fear T h& at T wNdow, T fire N T thatch, T fist N T tavern, T push Nto T canal, LeS than we fear T love of God. We acknowledge our trespaS, our weakneS, our fault; we acknowledge That T sN of T world is upon our heads; that T blOd of T martyrs & T agony of T saNts Is upon our heads. Lord, have mercy upon us.
