מוֹדָה|מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶיךָ
רוּחַ חַי וְקַיָּם
שֶׁהֶחֱזַרְתָּ בִּי נִשְׁמָתִי בְּחֶמְלָה
רַבָּה אֱמוּנָתֶךָ‏׃
Thankful am I in your Presence,
Spirit who lives and endures,
for You’ve returned to me my soul with compassion.
Abundant is your faith!

Modeh Ani first appeared as an addendum in Seder ha-Yom by Rav Moshe Ibn Machir of Tzfat, published in 1599. Read more on Modeh Ani at Hardcore Mesorah.
