Are there English translations of The Metta Sutta in the same syntactical order as the Pali version?

I thought it might be nice to chant along when the Metta Sutta is chanted at various services AND know what I am saying.

Is there a side by side English <-> Pali copy of the Metta Sutta, but the English words in the same order as the Pali words?

I found this from Ānandajoti Bhikkhu:
Mettasuttam.pdf (47.6 KB)

For extra: please have a look at this very good work from Piya Tan. I think maybe you can find something very close to what you you wish from page 30/36 onward.

Or a lot of translations for your own comparison:
