"Let me speak of the splendor of Your power and Your wondrous deeds." (Psalm 145:5)

The letter "hei" is the fifth letter in the Hebrew alphabet, the first letter of the word "hadar" meaning "splendor" and "glory". This letter is also found twice in the Holy Name of the G-d of Israel (The Tetra- grammaton). It also begins the word "henini" or "Here I am..." This is the word Abraham, Jacob, and Moses instantly responded with when called on by G-d.
