You are definitely on the right track. Try
text = \lyricmode
\override Score . LyricText #'font-name = "Vera Bold"
\override Score . LyricText #'font-shape = #'italic
Glo- ri- a, ...

However, at least on my system, there is no italic version of Vera Bold.
For the font size, the manual tells that the font-size property is given relative to the value of the paper variable text-font-size, but it doesn't tell how this is set by default. By looking at the implementation, I found out that the default value of text-font-size is 12pt for the default 20pt staff size and in general
12 / 20 * staff size.

A week ago I started using Lilypond. So far it seems to have fabulous possibilities. I only have one simple question. I want to change the fontsize & fonttype of the lyrics in my file, but can't find a way to do so. I will ad an example of one of my files. Please tell me how to change these to (preferably) Palatino Linotype, 14pt.

\paper {
 #(set-paper-size "a4")
#(set-global-staff-size 10)
left-margin = 15\mm
line-width = #150
system-count = 2
\layout {
 indent = #0
melody = \relative c'
\clef treble
\key f \major
\repeat volta 2
\time 6/8
a'8( g) a bes4. g8( f) g a4. \bar "||" d,4 d8 g8( a) bes c4. a \bar "||"
a8( d) c bes4. g8( c) bes a4. \bar "||" f8 e f g4. e8 d e f4.
text = \lyricmode
\override Score . LyricText #'font-name . "Vera Bold" #'font-shape = #'italic

Glo- ri- a, glo- ri- a, in ex- cel- sis De- o!
Glo- ri- a, glo- ri- a, al- le- lu- ia, al- le- lu- ia!
