Please read in the manual about the difference between <...> and
If you replace \context Staff  = Vocal < ... > with
\context Staff  = Vocal { ... }, Lilypond will typeset the
\Treble and \text after the \Intro, not simultaneously, as you
asked for.

You problaby want the lyrics between the staves, not below the
bass. To get that, add the line 
      \context Lyrics = "verse" {\skip 1*100}
before \context Staff = BassStaff {.
It's not critical how long a skip you make, just it's long 
enough to keep the Staff alive until the real lyrics begins
but not longer than the total piece.

Finally, you can add a ChoirStaff context to get brackets
for each pair of staves. After these changes (and some fine 
tuning the position of the bar numbers), I got the following
\score declaration:

\score {
\context ChoirStaff <
         \context Staff = Vocal {
                  \notes {
                                \key g \major
                                       \time 4/4
                                                \clef treble
                                                        \partial 2
\property Staff.automaticMelismata = ##t
                                         \context Lyrics = "verse" \text
                                         \context Lyrics = "verse" {\skip 1*100}
                                         \context Staff = BassStaff {
                                                  \clef bass
        \paper {
               indent = 0.0\mm
                                                BarNumber \override
#'padding = #3

            \midi { \tempo 4 = 60 }
