See the Morning is an album that was released on September 26, 2006 by Chris Tomlin. The title comes from that idea that "our God is as faithful as the rising sun" and is the "Light of the World".[4] The album was originally released in two versions: one with 11 tracks, the other with 4 alternate versions of his songs (including acoustic and demo versions) and a special behind-the-scenes look at the recording of the album. Since then, another version, the tour edition, has been released, which features the standard version, along with music/live videos, along with a sermon by Louie Giglio titled "How Great is Our God". The first single from the album was "Made to Worship", which was first heard as an iTunes bonus track for the Passion album Everything Glorious.

Commercial response[edit]

See the Morning debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200. Combined with a No. 1 debut on the SoundScan compiled Current Contemporary Christian, Christian Retail and Billboard Christian Album sales charts with 47,420 units sold, the CD experienced a 113% sales leap over Arriving's first-week numbers (that album went on to be Platinum-certified). The album has sold 116,000 copies as of June 2007 and was certified Gold by the RIAA in January 2008.[5]
