  \new Lyrics \with {
    \override VerticalAxisGroup #'staff-affinity = #CENTER

should do the trick.
But the result does not appear centered in this case.  I suspect it is
due to the fact that you have a voice with stems up in the lower staff
(Tenor) and no voice with stems down in the upper staff (Alto).

So in this case I would "simply" increase the minimum distance between
the Lyrics and the related Staff (upper staff).

  \new Lyrics \with {
    \override VerticalAxisGroup #'nonstaff-relatedstaff-spacing
      #'minimum-distance = #6
