How can I properly insert lyrics to a 4-part choral setting?

I am using "Lilypond" version 1.4.12 under windows XP
and have trouble with the output of lyrics in a
choral setting.
The ".midi" file plays the four parts perfectly well,
and the ".ps" file displays the four staves and the notes
exactly as expected. The problem is that the lyrics for
alto, tenor and bass end up being displayed under the
soprano staff, together with the soprano lyrics. I get
this warning from "ly2dvi":
"Huh? Melismatic note found to have associated lyrics"
I have looked everywhere for an example on how to set a
choral score, but seem to have missed it.
Here I include the "score" part of the ".ly" file I´m
working on. I will very much appreciate your kind
suggestions on this matter.
Thanks a lot,
Marcelo Martin :)
