I do this all the time for chant. You use "\once \override LyricText #'self-alignment-X = #LEFT" for the last word of the line. Try this:

BEGIN LilyPond

\version "2.11.19"
global = {
        \key e \major
        \set Staff.whichBar = ""
        \set Score.timing = ##f

trebMusicA = {
        \fatText s4_"A" \noBreak
        <gis' e'>2 \break <fis' dis'>4
bassMusicA = {
        s4 <b e>2  \break <b b,>4

allWords = \lyricmode
\set stanza = "1" \once \override LyricText #'self-alignment-X = #LEFT \markup{Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of the} \once \override LyricText #'self-alignment-X = #LEFT \markup {wicked,* \italic "(Look truly happy that you are not one of those wicked.)"}

\score {

        \context ChoirStaff <<
           \context Staff = women <<

                                \context Voice =
                                women { \oneVoice \global
                        \context Lyrics = women \lyricsto women \allWords
                        \context Staff = men <<
                        \clef bass
                        \context Voice =
                                basses { \oneVoice \global
                \context {
                                \remove "Time_signature_engraver"
                                \override Stem #'transparent = ##t
                \context {
                                \override Stem #'length = #0

END Lilypond

I am setting the Reproaches for Good Friday and after each verse want to add
some italic text indicating which response follows that verse.

If I try using \markup and line it with the lyrics, the lyrics all move

How can I leave the lyrics where they are, and add some extra italic words to the end that have no note to attach to? If this means adding an invisible note
of some  sort that takes up no space, please tell me how?

Thank you
