A Prayer of Gratitude

by Dayle Friedman | With Peter Simpkins

מודה אני לפניך מלך חי וקים
שהחזרת בי נשמתי בחמלה רבה אמונתך

Modeh/modah ani lefanecha,
melech chai v’kayam,
Shehechezarta bi nishmati b’hemlah,
raba emunatecha.

Grateful I arise this day
Eternal God, to You I pray
For the spirit You’ve renewed in me
Mercifully and steadfastly.

Daily prayer for awakening; melody and translation, Rabbi Dayle Friedman
