Blessing for the Morning

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalm 5:3(4h)

The Yotzer Hame'orot is a blessing often recited before the declaration of the Shema duing the morning (shacharit) service (this blessing corresponds to the Ma'ariv Aravim blessing recited before the Ma'ariv Shema declaration). An abbreviated version of the blessing is provided here:

Blessed art Thou, LORD our God, Master of the universe, who forms light and creates darkness, who makes peace and creates all things. Blessed art Thou, LORD, who forms the lights.
