That is good, but I suggest that you (well really it's my preferences)
separate things into separate files.
I use a

. header file,
  since I might set the header in latex/openoffice/etc.

. file for the music without any layout thingies,
  so that I can have different "top" files for different uses,
  e.g. one instrument/voice only, full partiture, chor partiture,
  scores with different clefs, transpositions,
  and thoose all use the same "music" file

. data file I generate staff etc from,
  since the staff, voice etc things all looks the same except some name 
  here and there

 the doc is really your friend here:

But basically you define your lyrics and music, and use it in
the score (others have shown you other ways to do the same thing):

lyrA = \context Lyrics = lyrA \lyricmode { zzz }
musA = \relative a' { b1 }
voiceA  = \context Voice = voiceA { \musA }
nameA = {}
staffA  = \new Staff \with \nameA << \voiceA ... >>

\score {
    \new ChoirStaff <<
      \lyricsto voiceA \lyrA
