W. Garrett Horder, comp.  The Poets’ Bible: New Testament.  1895.
Two went up into the Temple to pray
Richard Crashaw (c. 1613–1649)
TWO went to pray? Oh! 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;        5
The other to the altar’s God.
