Thanks, Mike and David. Here's also what comes close to Pope's thought:
 
"Here lieth the body of 
 John Ferrar Esqr Lord of
 This mannour who departed
 This life ye 28th Septembr 1657
 on the reverse of the plate:
 Flee from evil
 And
 Doe ye thinge yt is good
 And
 Dwell for evermore
 Ps 37:2"

That is another interesting depiction David, the words I  quoted are actually written (dare not say etched)within a circle on the glass in the Oratory.

"Yet gave me, in this dark estate, 
    To see the good from ill" 
 
"If I am right, thy grace impart, 
    Still in the right to stay; 
If I am wrong, oh teach my heart 
    To find a better way."
