There is a hassidish minhag to say a possuk--between washing the hands and before the brachach--when washing hands for bread. For the life of me I cannot remember which possuk it is, but I remember it being pretty universal across Hasidic sects. Can anyone tell me what possuk it is? Thank you!

Many say the following passuk:

שְׂאֽוּ־יְדֵכֶ֥ם קֹ֑דֶשׁ וּ֝בָרְכ֗וּ אֶת־ה'׃

Lift your hands toward the sanctuary and bless Hashem.

    Sefaria's Siddur Sefard has this: "שְׂאוּ יְדֵיכֶם קוֹדֶשׁ וּבָרְכוּ אֶת ה': וְאֶשָׂא כַפַּי אֶל מִצְוֹתֶיךָ אֲשֶׁר אָהַבְתִּי וְאָשִׂחָה בְחֻקֶּיךָ".
