Oude Liederen (Old Hymns) is a collection of twelve hymns composed by Joachim Oudaen, Jan Bredenburg Jr., and Reinier Rooleeuw, which was introduced with a new rhymed version of the Psalms in 1684 in the Lam and Toren Mennonite congregation at Amsterdam and used there until 1797. There were a number of reprints: the following unchanged editions are known: Amsterdam 1685 (with notes), Haarlem 1713, Haarlem 1713 (with notes), Amsterdam 1721, Amsterdam 1727, Haarlem 1734, Haarlem 1756, Haarlem 1756 (increased by seven hymns; this edition is entitled Opwekkende Gezangen), Rotterdam 1775 (entitled Liederen en Gezangen), Amsterdam 1793 (two different editions). A greatly revised edition was published at Amsterdam in 1791. (Copies of most of these editions are found in [[Amsterdam Mennonite Library (Bibliotheek en Archief van de Vereenigde Doopsgezinde Gemeente te Amsterdam)|Amsterdam Mennonite Library]].)
