"The Prophets great Inspirer only praise. / Yet tho to God alone the Praise belong, / With him and thee we share the pleasing Song. / Thus Aaron Incense on its Altar laid, / And, while attending Israel bow'd and pray'd; / The balmy Steams, for Heav'n alone prepar'd, / The Priest, the People, and the Godhead shar'd."
