I'm a beginner. I apologize if my question is dumb.

I used this template:

Bar #3 and #4 are repeated with different lyrics, so I need two stanzas
that align with these notes.

I made new variables for the second stanza (sopranowordstwo,
altowordstwo, tenorwordstwo and basswordstwo) but if I just use \new
Lyrics \lyricsto in the \score {} environment the lyrics are displayed
at the beginning of the song.

How can I make sure that the lyrics of the second stanza are aligned
with bar #3 and #4? 

For the sincere inquirer, only unasked questions are dumb ones. Welcome to the 'Pond!

A quick and dirty way to do what you want is to add "\repeat unfold 8 { \skip 4 }" before the second repeat lyrics to start them with the right notes, like:

sopranowordstwo = \lyricmode { \repeat unfold 8 { \skip 4 } \set stanza = #"2. " pu pu pu pu pu pu pu pu }
