A Song about Jeronimus Segersz and his Wife Lijsken
To the Tune: “O Zion wilt thou gather”
1 Most faithful is the Lord our God
Comforts his own from morn to night. 2 Cor 1:4
When Jeroen, together with his Wife,
From evil suffered sorrow great,
So they were not forsaken Jos 1:5, Heb 13:5
By God, in their sad, dark affliction,
Who in their need did come to aid them, Ps 91:15
Through his spirit most wondrously.
