"Invocation" is the opening song of The Carpenters' debut album, Ticket to Ride. It was written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis.

The song is purely vocal a-cappella, and was one of two a-cappella Carpenters songs, the other being "Without a Song".


For those whose eyes would see
Render them in faith to me
For all those seeking peace
In my arms their strife shall cease
And place in me the agony You bear
Nothing can impair the perfect love I bring
In a simple offering (In a simple offering)
