"Een Liedeken van IIIJ vrienden, van Leiden," a Dutch hymn composed by Adriaen Cornelisz, commemorating the martyrdom of Willem (Willem Matthijsz), Mariken (Marijtgen Adriaens) Dieuwertgen Jans, and Mariken Jans. These four martyrs were executed at Leiden in the Dutch province of South Holland. They were not put to death in 1550, as is stated in Groot Offerboek of 1615 and van Braght, Martyrs Mirror, but in the fall of 1552. The song beginning "Eylaes ick mach wel suchten, dat nu buert so groot client" (Alas, I should sigh because now occurs such great misery) is found in the oldest edition of the Lietboecxken van den Offer des Heeren of 1562-63, of the Nieu Liedenboeck of 1562, and later Dutch hymnbooks. It has been republished by Wackernagel. A prose version of this hymn is found in the 17th-century Dutch martyrbook, including the Martyrs Mirror.
