Dat ic u moet begheven
Language: Dutch (Nederlands) 
Dat ic u moet begheven
Doet mijnre herten seer.
Margriet, mijn soete leven,
Ic en sie u nemmer meer.

Ghi hebt met mi versleten
So menighen bliden dach,
Margriet, dat ic vergheten
Uu noit sal ofte mach.
 
Wat sal mijn truren baten?
Mijn truren is ghedaen:
Margriet, ic moet u laten,
'c moet troostloos henen gaen.

Note: Hoffmann von Fallersleben collected this and many other Flemish poems and published them in three volumes titled Horae Belgicae
