On becoming conscious, say Modeh Ani, as follows:

Mo-deh   a-ni   l'fa-ne-cha
me-lech   chai   v'ka-yam
she-he-che-zar-ta   bi   nish-ma-ti
b'chem-la   ra-bah   e-mu-na-te-cha.
I give thanks before You,
living and eternal King,
who has returned my soul into me
in compassion; great is Your faithfulness.

After washing the hands, say:

Ba-ruch   a-tah   A-do-nai,
E-lo-hei-nu,   Me-lech   Ha-o-lam,
a-sher   ki-d'sha-nu   b'mits-vo-tav,
v'tsi-va-nu,
al   n'ti-lat   ya-da-yim.

Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who has hallowed us via His commandments,
and commanded us
concerning the elevation of hands.




After going to the bathroom, and then washing hands as above, say Asher Yatsar, as follows:

Ba-ruch  a-tah  A-do-nai,
Elo-hei-nu,  me-lech  l'o-lam,
A-sher  ya-tsar
et  ha-a-dam  b'choch-mah,
u-va-ra  vo
n'ka-vim  n'ka-vim,
cha-lu-lim  cha-lu-lim,
ga-lu  v'ya-du-a
lif-nei  chi-sei  ch'vo-de-cha
she-im  yi-pa-tei-ach  e-chad  mei-hem
o  yi-sa-teim  e-chad  mei-hem,
i  ef-shar  l'hit-ka-yeim
v'la-a-mod  l'fa-ne-cha
[a-fi-lu  sha-ah  e-chat].
Ba-ruch  a-tah  A-do-nai,
ro-fei  chawl  ba-sar
u-maf-li  la-a-sot.

Blessed are You, HaShem,
Our God, Sovereign of Space-Time,
Who formed
Adam with wisdom (1)
and created within him
many openings
and many cavities. (2)
It is obvious and known
before Your Throne of Glory (3)
that if one of them were to be ruptured
or one one of them were to be blocked
it would be impossible to survive
and to stand before You
[for even one hour].
Blessed are You, HaShem,
Who heals all flesh
and acts wondrously. (4)

(1) This has two meanings: God demonstrated wisdom when he created human beings; God gave human beings wisdom.



(2) Openings lead in or out of the body, cavities house the organs.



(3) We assert that God on High is indeed concerned with earthly matters.



(4) by organizing the delicate balance of the physical organs (Beit Yosef); by fusing body and soul to make a person (Rama).



Before donning the small tallis, while inspecting the fringes, men say:

Ba-ruch   a-tah  A-do-nai,
E-lo-hei-nu,  Me-lech  Ha-o-lam,
a-sher   ki-d'sha-nu  b'mits-vo-tav,
v'tsi-va-nu,  
al  mits-vat  tsi-tsit.
Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who has hallowed us via His commandments,
and commanded us
concerning the commandment of fringes.

Before donning the large tallis, while inspecting the fringes, recite the first two verses of Psalm 104:

Ba-r'chi  naf-shi  et  A-do-nai,
A-do-nai   E-lo-hai  ga-dal-ta  m'od,
hod   v'ha-dar  la-vash-ta.
O-te   or  ka-sal-mah,
no-teh   sha-ma-yim  kai-ri-ah.


When ready to don it, men say:
Ba-ruch   a-tah  A-do-nai,
E-lo-hei-nu,  Me-lech  Ha-o-lam,
a-sher   ki-d'sha-nu  b'mits-vo-tav,
v'tsi-va-nu,  l'-hit-a-teif  ba-tsi-tsit.
Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who has hallowed us via His commandments,
and commanded us to enwrap in fringes.

While the head and body are enwrapped, recite verses 8 through 11 of Psalm 36:

Ma ya-kar   chas-d'cha  E-lo-him,
uv-nei   a-dam  b'tseil  k'na-fe-cha  ye-che-sa-yun.
Yir-v'yun   mi-de-shen  bei-te-cha,
v'na-chal   a-da-ne-cha  tash-keim.
Ki   i-m'cha  m'kor  cha-yim,
b'o-r'cha   nir-eh  or.
M'shoch   chas-d'cha  l'yo-d'e-cha,
v'tsid-ka-t'cha   l'yish-rei leiv.




Before tightening the arm t'fillin, men say:

Ba-ruch   a-tah  A-do-nai,
E-lo-hei-nu,  Me-lech  Ha-o-lam,
a-sher  ki-d'sha-nu  b'mits-vo-tav,
v'tsi-va-nu,  l'-ha-ni-ach  t'fi-lin.
Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who has hallowed us via His commandments,
and commanded us to don t'fillin.

Before donning the head t'fillin, men say:

Ba-ruch  a-tah  A-do-nai,
E-lo-hei-nu,  Me-lech  Ha-o-lam,
a-sher  ki-d'sha-nu  b'mits-vo-tav,
v'tsi-va-nu,
al  mits-vat  t'fi-lin.
Praised are You, HaShem,
Our God, King of the Universe,
who has hallowed us via His commandments,
and commanded us
concerning the commandment of t'fillin.
