Yep, thanks, or to speak with the lyrics: „Schönen Dank“ (”thanks a lot“). :-)

The only pity is that, after I researched it for half an hour, I found out 
that I can’t center-align the first syllable of the lower line, because it 
starts on a melisma. So I had to left-align the upper line, in order for the 
two lines to be aligned to each other. This looks a little ugly, but well, I’m 
glad I’m done with it now.

It’s funny that, for almost every piece I set for my choir, I had to research 
and learn one or two new things about lilypond.
