I find the behavior with lyrics and alternative repeats somewhat illogical.. 

For me the logical thing would be something like:
\version "2.12.2"  
\score {
  \new GrandStaff {
    \new Staff {
      \new Voice = "alku" \relative c' { 
                \repeat volta 2 { c d e f g a b c } 
                \alternative {
                        { d e f g }
                        { d c b a }
          \new Lyrics \lyricsto "alku" { 
                cx dx ex fx gx ax bx cx dI eI fI gI 
                cy dy ey fy gy ay by cy 
                dII cII bII aII }
% Places where lyrics should be:
% I = first ending
% II = second ending
% x = first stanza
% y = second stanza

Also, if you don't want to have different stanzas, only repeat the same lyrics,
you could add "\repeat volta" and \alternative to the lyrics.

Perhaps in the future..?
