Sutta source for "May all beings be well, happy, and peaceful"?

We say this phrase many times, and yet I haven’t seen a Sutta source for the exact words. The karaniya Metta Sutta contains similar phrases, but not the exact same. Pardon if I’m splitting hairs here.

Thanks,
Jim

(9) “He is of good will and his intentions are free of hate thus:
‘May these beings live happily, free from enmity, affliction, and anxiety!’
– AN10.211

The Pali is:

‘ime sattā averā hontu abyāpajjā anīghā, sukhī attānaṃ pariharantū’
