Upon Mount Sinai God showed His plan  
A tabernacle as centre of the camp.
He who approached the tent had first to pass
Altar and laver for cleansing heart and hand;
Within he saw the effulgent golden lamp,
Pure beaten work embellishing each branch;
The tables with the bread at God's command
Bearing its freight above the desert sand;
The golden altar sublimely odorant  
All spoke to God of the transcendent Man
Whom He would name as after His own heart,
By whom His full delight would be advanced.
