The motet O Jesu, te invocamus arose through an adaptation of the text of the final chorus of Joseph Haydn's -Applausus, a festive cantata composed in 1768. For church music performances, the Latin text O Jesu, te invocamus was closely attached to the primary text and often only single words were replaced. The German alternative text Allmachtiger, Preis dir und Ehre, for which there was neither a biblical nor a liturgical basis, was added to the Latin text.
