The Martyrdom of John Hus from The One Year Christian History

When he was tied to the stake, he was given one last opportunity to recant. Hus replied, “God is my witness that . . . the principal intention of my preaching and of all my other acts or writings was solely that I might turn men from sin. And in that truth of the gospel . . . I am willing gladly to die today.” As the flames shot up around him, he could be heard singing, “Jesus, Son of God, have mercy upon me.”
