I did a bit of research on why this is happening (the text fixes to the first note, and the 2nd note is placed after the end of the text) and found it to be a consequence of including the file   By trial and error commenting on that file, I found it's caused by the line
 \override SpacingSpanner #'packed-spacing = ##t
in that file.  Resetting this in the music file fixes the problem:
global = {
  \key f \major
  \override Staff.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f
  \override Staff.BarLine #'stencil = ##f
  \override Score.SpacingSpanner #'packed-spacing = ##f

With the following file, I want to begin adding text expressions above the music. While I understand the basics, I am faltering on how to get the expressions exactly how I want them. E.g. I want the following phrase: ^\markup{\italic 
    ''Blessed is the Kingdom ... ''} to be aligned above the 1st measure of music, but evenly space, not shifting the music or notes any at all. How, can I accomplish this?
