There is a "many languages in UTF-8" sampler here:

but of course it lacks some of the scripts you mentioned. I too would like
to have Urdu, Khmer, Arabic, Korean, and other missing versions of the short,
silly phrase repeated there. (A new language trickles in every couple weeks,
recent additions include Cornish, Walloon, and my own no doubt fractured
renditions of Anglo Saxon and Middle English -- it's always nice to find a
use for Yogh :-) I'm sure some readers of this list can send a few more --
at least Lombard and Glaswegian? Extra points for Pictish and Papiamentu.
