If you prefer to use the Guix API from Guile, you could use something

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(use-modules (guix derivations)
             (guix gexp)
             (guix store)
             (gnu packages base))

(let* ((hello-drv (with-store store
                    (run-with-store store (lower-object hello))))
       (hello-store-path (derivation->output-path hello-drv)))

  (format #t "~a~%" hello-store-path)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
