By the way, and you can ignore this if you want, LilyPond can put in a properly placed lyric hyphen if you set the lyrics like this:

We Cru -- sa -- ders of the Eu -- cha -- _ rist,
With joy we _ con -- se -- crate to Your Heart

Also, if you use slurs in the notes then you shouldn't need to put single underscores "_" in the lyrics. Up to you, of course.

My hymn has a key signature of B Major, so I have to manually sharp all the naturals in the code.

On this one syllable - the "cha-" in Eucharist, I need to have the beamed 8th notes span for one syllable, and both be sharped AND still keep the slur line.

How do I do that?

melody = \relative c' {
    \partial 8
    fis8 b4 ais8[ gis] fis2 dis8[ e] dis8([ c]) b4. b8 e4 ...

wordsOne = \lyricmode {
    \set stanza = "1. "
