Uitgezochte Liederen voor den openbaren en huis-selijken Godsdienst (Selected Hymns for Public and Private Meetings) is a Dutch Mennonite hymnal composed of selections from Mennonite and non-Mennonite hymnbooks, containing 163 hymns with notes, published at West-Zaandam in 1809. The compilers were Jan van Geuns, Matthijs Siegenbeek, P. Beets Pzn, and Jeronimo de Vries. The expectation that this hymnal would be accepted as a general Mennonite hymnal in the Netherlands to be used in all congregations was not realized, though soon after the publication fourteen congregations introduced it in their services. It was also for more than 50 years popular for private use.
