(burned November 13, 1544 in Delden)
To the tune: “The May is at the height of bloom.”
1 Sorrow will I put behind me And sing with heartfelt joy: Mary of Beckom's tale I'll begin: She had to suffer for God's word. Her mother drove her from their home; This tale became known in the diocese of Utrecht; It was reported to the Governor, And therefore he summoned her to him.
