\version "2.19.83"

\markup \fill-line {
   \center-column \override #'(line-width . 50) \wordwrap-lines
   { Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer
     volutpat tincidunt libero, a malesuada sapien scelerisque sed.
     Phasellus sed placerat est. Mauris fringilla dignissim nulla.
     Cras vitae elit a tellus egestas aliquam. }

While \center-column will take care of aligning the individual markups
from \wordwrap-lines, it is the use of \fill-line that will ensure the
overall markup is centered on the page.


 And the  \override #'(line-width . 50) is just to make the lines shorter?  It looks like it works without it, centered but much wider.
