Excerpt from Rejoice With Trembling: A Sermon Preached in Westminster Abbey, on March 15, 1863, Being the Sunday After the Marriage of His Royal Highness Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, With the Princess Alexandra of Denmark
Thus then we see, that at the first manifestation of His Divine Glory, our blessed Lord referred prophetically to the hour of His human suffering; and has thus taught us the doctrine of the per feet union of the two natures, the divine and human, in Himself; and that at the joyful festi val Of a Marriage He looked forward to the bitter anguish of His Passion, when He, who is God blessed for ever,2 would shed forth as man His own most precious blood, and change the puri fying water of the Old Law into the new wine of the Gospel, and would redeem us from the bondage of sin and Satan, and purchase to Him self ah universal Church,3 whom he has joined in holy espousals to Himself as His bride, and who, after the sorrows of this earthly pilgrimage, will dwell with him for ever and ever in the glories of His heavenly kingdom.
