If the verse and the chorus are so brief, I would not engrave
repeat bar lines around the four-bar repeated sections, only the
outer "3x" repeat that wraps the entire 16-bar verse-chorus

If you wish, you could use 'repeat unfold' in your code:

myVerse = \relative f {
% four bars, engraved twice:
  \repeat unfold 2 {
    a1 b1 c1 b1
} % myVerse

myChorus = \relative f {
% four bars, engraved twice:
  \repeat unfold 2 {
    c1 a1 b1 a1 
} % myChorus

threeTimes = \repeat 3 {
