NBC’s The Voice contestant, Matthew Schuler/NBC 

Christian contestant and frontrunner on NBC’s “The Voice,” Matthew Schuler, 20, wasn’t joking around when he declared that he is singing for the Lord. A video of an original song he recorded this summer in praise of God’s power to turn vices into victory is inspiring thousands of viewers on YouTube and they are giving thanks for his faithfulness.

A video of the song written and sung by Schuler titled, “Vices to Victory,” gets to the heart of human frailty and the need for communion with God. An edited version of the lyrics to the song provided by guitarist Daniel Faehl, who also posted the video to YouTube, follows below.

Saturate the deepest part of my soul. Let Your ways shape the path I take.
Your strength is my strength, help me fight for You

And I’ll turn my vices into victory, the power of Christ has set me free. You’ve broken my chains, in You I’m saved. And You hung my sin upon a tree, and left it there You died for me. I give you my praise, how I love Your name
