Samuel Longfellow
n.d.. The undated poem is called "Looking Unto God" but was published in Longfellow's book "Hymns of the Spirit" in 1864 under the name "I Look to Thee in Every Need." In full, the poem begins with the quote "To see God's hand in all things and all things in God's hand." It reads in full, "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 & pain, & sorrow are! Discouraged in the work of life, disheartened by its load, shamed by its failures or its fears, I think beside the road, - But let me only think of Thee, and then new heart springs up in me! They calmness bends serene above, my restlessness to still around me flows thy quick'ning life to nerve my faltering will; thy presence fills my solitude; My providence turns all to good! Embossed 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 loudest me by unsought ways And turn'st my mourning into praise!" Signed "Saml Longfellow"
