Kleine Bundel (Small Collection) is the popular designation for a Dutch Mennonite hymnbook of the church bij ‘t Lam en van den Toren at Amsterdam, adopted in 1792. It was first printed by Uylenbroek, van Hülst, and van Aken at Amsterdam in 1792, with the title Christelijke Gezangen ten gebruike der Doopsgezinde Gemeente vergaderende by het Lam en den Toren, te Amsterdam. It contains 68 hymns. When the Lam and Toren congregation united with the Zon congregation (1801), this hymnal was continued in use together with the Groote Bundel. It was discontinued in 1870. It was also used in many other places besides Amsterdam, but during the second half of the 19th century it was replaced in a number of congregations by new hymnals. In 1900 it was still used in seven congregations, and in 1940 only in Holwerd (until 1946).
