This single was Seals & Crofts most unlikely hit. The lyrics, complimented by a chant-like chorus, quote from scriptures of the Baha'i faith, which was founded in the mid-1800's by a Persian nobleman who left his life behind in search of truth. The faith was long little-known outside of the mountainous areas of Iran and Turkey, but has since drawn much interest and is one of the fastest-growing religions in the world. The song itself was a major hit, reaching #20 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is a favorite among fans.
