Eenighe gheestelijcke liedekens
Eenighe gheestelijcke liedekens, gemaeckt aen verscheyden personen is a Dutch hymnbook, containing 46 songs written by Jan Jacobsz. They were collected by Harmen Harmensz and edited by Pieter Willemsz, who wrote an introduction and also a conclusion and the end of the book, bearing the date 1613. The front page states that the book was published in 1612 by Nicolaas Biestkens at Amsterdam. The poetical quality of the songs is mediocre, though they were much liked by the congregations of the Janjacobs group, most of them using these hymns until the middle of the 18th century.
