I think this is a general rule that has been used to state the phenomenon
of anvaya-vyatireka.  Its proper form is यत्सत्त्वे यत्सत्त्वम्, यदभावे
यदभावः.  When applied to a specific case, its form transforms to what you
have cited. So I think one need not look for an original source of the
first ever occurrence of this rule.

This comes very close to what you have cited:

Glory of Rama Naam - Lord Rama


रaमते सर्वभुतेषु स्थावरेषु चरेषु च । अन्तरात्मस्वरुपेण यच्च रामेति कथ्यते
॥४६॥ रामेति मन्त्रराजोऽयं भवव्याधिनिषुदकः ।
