The contexts are normally printed in the order in which they are defined, so simply moving the \new Lyrics command for the sopranos so it comes before the \new Staff command for the joint soprano/alto staff should do it. See the SATB vocal score template in the Notation Reference section A.4.1.
Trevor, your answer doesn't mention the fact that you cannot use \lyricsto before the corresponding Voice has been defined. However, your're right that the SATB templates show different solutions to work around this problem. I searched the rest of the manual and the only place I can find this issue mentioned is in 2.1.1 Entering Lyrics, subsection "Lyrics and variables", which describes one solution, but not the one using alignAboveContext, which has been mentioned by the other answers in this thread. I know that the Vocal music chapter is being revised right now, so perhaps it will appear soon.

Subject: Lyrics of a Voice above the Staff of the Voice

Hello together,
I'm working on a sheet where the lyrics of the Soprano are set above its staff because the staff is shared with the Alto which has lyrics differing from those
of the Soprano at some positions (which I read by using \skip).
As far as I have 4 stanzas, using markups is not a usable workaround.
Recently I got to:
\override LyricText #'extra-offset = #'(0 . 20)
But this leaves the hyphens below the Staff and only moves the text into other
page items.

So the question is:

How do I get the lyrics above the staff of the voice they are assigned to by

Thanks in advance for any help.
