The command is 'Hier'.
In German, ie is pronounced ee and ei is pronounced i. In 'hier', the r is soft and is not very audible. More like Heea. Most, but not all 'r's are enunciated well back in the throat with the back of the tongue just grazing the top of the rear of the mouth.
It is were a lot of the rolling 'r's are sounded when they are audible. As in Retchs, or right as in direction of travel.
This concludes your German lesson for today.
