First Line: Two went to pray? O rather say
Last Line: The other to the altar's god.
Subject(s): Bible; Prayer; Religion; Theology


TWO went to pray? O, rather say,
One went to brag, the other to pray;

One stands up close and treads on high,
Where the other dares not lend his eye;

One nearer to God's altar trod,
The other to the altar's God.
