Here's the four Brahmaviharas in Pali:
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... ml#sublime
Ahaṃ sukhito homi
May I be happy.

Niddukkho homi
May I be free from stress & pain.

Avero homi
May I be free from animosity.

Abyāpajjho homi
May I be free from oppression.

Anīgho homi
May I be free from trouble.

Sukhī attānaṃ pariharāmi
May I look after myself with ease.

(METTĀ — GOOD WILL)
Sabbe sattā sukhitā hontu.
May all living beings be happy.

Sabbe sattā averā hontu.
May all living beings be free from animosity.

Sabbe sattā abyāpajjhā hontu.
May all living beings be free from oppression.

Sabbe sattā anīghā hontu.
May all living beings be free from trouble.

Sabbe sattā sukhī attānaṃ pariharantu.
May all living beings look after themselves with ease.

(KARUṆĀ — COMPASSION)
Sabbe sattā sabba-dukkhā pamuccantu.
May all living beings be freed from all stress & pain.

(MUDITĀ — APPRECIATION)
Sabbe sattā laddha-sampattito mā vigacchantu.
May all living beings not be deprived of the good fortune they have attained.

(UPEKKHĀ — EQUANIMITY)
Sabbe sattā kammassakā kamma-dāyādā kamma-yonī kamma-bandhū kamma-paṭisaraṇā.
All living beings are the owners of their actions, heir to their actions, born of their actions, related through their actions, and live dependent on their actions.

Yaṃ kammaṃ karissanti kalyāṇaṃ vā pāpakaṃ vā tassa dāyādā bhavissanti.
Whatever they do, for good or for evil, to that will they fall heir.

Yes, that's a nice version. I carry it around on my mp3 player...

Do you know if there is an on-line written version. Much of it is variations on the chant I quoted above, but there are other bits I don't recognise.
