Jonny Diaz, “Beauty of the Cross”

Those of you unfamiliar with Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Jonny Diaz should get a taste of his new single, Beauty of the Cross. Diaz scored a Top 10 hit late in 2009 with More Beautiful You, and a second single, Waiting Room, performed well on the Soft AC/Inspo chart. Now, Diaz’s Beauty of the Cross is performing well on that chart as well; this week, it is one of the most-added at Inspo radio, and registers one of the greatest increases in spins as well. I’m confident Beauty of the Cross, the carrier single off Jonny Diaz’s new self-titled album, will perform just as well as his previous tracks.

Jonny Diaz

At the cross I find the beauty of Your matchless grace
At the cross I see a King who died to take my place
It’s the moment that You made me clean and pardoned my soul
Amazing grace that I would be allowed unto Your throne
Not by my own will but solely by Your will alone
I’m unworthy of this love you have shown to me
I see my desperate need

The beauty of the cross is that there’s One who has redeemed my soul
Beauty of the cross is that I’m finally free and letting go
Beauty of the cross is that Your grace has found me just as I am

Not by my own works that I may boast or I may come
But simply through your Son the sinless and Exalted One
Only through the cross that I’m made clean to draw near to you
Saved so that you would receive all glory due Your name
Everlasting God from age to age you never change
A true love story remains for all eternity
That all the world would see

My sinful soul could only be
Redeemed by the blood of a sinless King
So you came to the world that You had made
Conquered sin on the cross and You rose from the grave

That’s the beauty of the cross
