This is the second verse of Hymn 134 in the Christian Science Hymnal, adapted from Samuel Longfellow’s original. Samuel was the brother of American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Here is the whole hymn.

I look to Thee in every need, And never look in vain; I feel Thy touch, eternal Love, And all is well again: The thought of Thee is mightier far Than sin and pain and sorrow are.

Thy calmness bends serene above, My restlessness to still; Around me flows Thy quickening life To nerve my faltering will: Thy presence fills my solitude; Thy providence turns all to good.

Embosomed deep in Thy dear love, Held in Thy law, I stand: Thy hand in all things I behold, And all things in Thy hand. Thou leadest me by unsought ways, Thou turn’st my mourning into praise.

        From Concord Express – A Christian Science Study Resource: The King James Version of the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s published writings.

A “name” tends to signify one’s nature in the Scriptures.

Here’s a favourite depiction of God’s “name” from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p.587)

God. The great I am; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence.

(Mary Baker Eddy)
