invisible time signature example unclear (hymnody request)

The example of doing an invisible time signature that is found in the
lilypond documentation really isn't very clear.

In many hymns, the time signature is 4/4, but it starts off with a bar
in 2/4, 3/8, or similar.

Oddly, in the second hymn I did, if I did the whole thing as 4/4,
lilypond complained that it couldn't find good places to break the
lines.  But when I made the first bar 3/8 and the last bar 5/8, lilypond
produced something almost identical to the original.  You can see what I
mean here:

Can someone clarify how to do invisible time signature changes?

Failing that, can we have a "grace measure", similar to how we have
grace notes?


It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
