I believe it is paraphrased from the Gemara (Gittin 59b) The Gemara is discussing the honour accorded to a Kohen, saying that he is accorded ראשון for לכל דבר שבקדושה. וקדשתו לכל דבר שבקדושה תנא דבי רבי ישמעאל וקדשתו לכל דבר שבקדושה לפתוח ראשון ולברך ראשון וליטול מנה יפה ראשון


Tehila L'Moshe published in 1563 is the first source I am aware of, although it is used there in a different context.
