There is no single phrase. It depends on the synagogue. In my synagogue, it's the sentence that translates as "Consider before whom you stand." It's a piece of advice from the section of the Mishnah that contains brief quotes and points to ponder from great Judaic sages of the past; the book is subtitled "pir-KAY ah-VOT", or "Ethics of the Fathers".

There is no standard Hebrew phrase above an ark in a synagogue. It depends on the artist who designed the ark. My synagogue has no writing above the ark.
