I don't know much about MIDI, so hopefully somebody else
can fill in more details. However, I just verified that all
words are included in the generated MIDI file and the first
word starts at time index zero.
It might help to figure out what the problem is if you could
find some other MIDI file where the first word does show up.

For the verse ordering, it seems that the verses appear in the
same order in the MIDI file as in the printed output. The question
is how your Karaoke player determines which one to play first.

One of the few things I have learned about MIDI over the years
is that it's far from standardized, so something that works for
one particular sequencer may not work on another.

I've noticed that when I use LilyPond midis as karaoke,
they skip the first word (at least in VanBasco's
Karaoke Player - that's generally all I use for midis,
other than Anvil Studio).  This appears to happen with
every version of LilyPond I've used for a really long
time.  I'm currently using 2.11.18 on Windows 2000.
Also (just a side-note, and perhaps not a bug:), it
seems the first verse isn't the chosen one for karaoke
most of the time (I'm not sure how the verse used is
determined when there are multiple verses on the same
music, but it would be nice to choose it; perhaps
there's a way already).
