Modeh Ani is recited upon waking, to acknowledge the miracle of being alive every day.

Mo’deh ani li’fa’nech’ah melech chai v’kayam, she’heh’cheh’zarta bee nishmatee b’chemla–raba emuna’tehcha.

I give thanks before You, living and eternal King, Who has returned my soul to me with compassion–abundant is Your faithfulness!
