Just set the 'tagline' header field:
  tagline = "Hello World!"

Once works well (it's broken at the
moment but worked reasonably yesterday), you could easily 
find the answer to this and many other questions from a free text
search in the on-line manual. Anyway, just set the paper variable
'indent' to the desired level of indentation:

    indent = 0.0\cm

Try a \context ChoirStaff instead of GrandStaff or StaffGroup or
whatever you tried.

See the example file input/regression/
or read in the reference manual about 'stanza'.

Hmm, that's a good question. I tried to use font markup
commands in the stanza property but it didn't work. 
Bug or limitation?

% Failed attempt:
\property LyricsVoice . stanza = #'(dynamic "mf")

I tried to change 
  ,dotted-eight-note " = 64" 
  ,note " = 64"
in the example and it looks reasonably good to me.
