For the text of the Metta Sutta, that is the Teaching on Loving Kindness, a beautiful translation of the original Buddhist verse, read it here.
Listen to a commentary on the Sutra here.

The Song of the Activity of Generosity
We benefit from the efforts of all beings.
We offer our thanks.
In this moment lie many distractions,
We aspire to this generosity
Sorrow arises from self-fixation,
With moderation we receive this
This offering sustains us, gives us strength,
We use this strength to practice the Way

But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water
or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child
-- our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.
