If you want ASCII character 214, you just need a text editor that
enables you to input that ASCII value as a character.
In Emacs, for example, type
(since 326 is octal for 214). If you have a German or nordic
keyboard, you can also press Ö, since it has character code 214 in
the Latin 1 encoding. If you have a Cyrillic keyboard, I'm sure you
can just press the desired key directly unless your editor plays
some funny games.

To set the font, you'll have to say something like:
\property Lyrics . LyricText \override #'font-name = #"wncyr10"

If I include a '!' in the lyrics, lilypond complains.
I tried using typing "!", and '!' but none works.
I need this feature to use the complete Cyrillic character set.
Does anybody know how to include all ascii characters?
Having to input the ascii numbering would do too for me.

I believe you want \\!

Thanks for answering Graham, I made a mistake, I put words={

} "!"

With the "!" within the brackets it works :/
But still I'm afraid that this is not the solution. When I do

WordsFouFO = \lyrics {"#"} it says:

ly2dvi:error: LaTeX failed on the output file.
ly2dvi:error: The error log is as follows:

<argument> ...utscale \magfontOLYUomMMBo \hbox {##
With \lyrics{\\#} it says:
0* }
ERROR: In expression }:
ERROR: Unbound variable: }


Isn't there a method to tell that I want ascii character 214 from font
wncyr10 for instance?
And does one know where I can get the Cyrillic R, mirrorred about its
vertical axis, and this character which resembles most the 'X', but with
some more small lines? (sorry, I don't know the name of it).
