Andy and others,
Many thanks for the recommendations. I've been looking at Covington and will also take a look at gb4e too. I actually changed Covington to allow more than 3 lines to be lined up, but I'm not sure how it will do with Ethiopic script (this is actually the first time I've done anything with Ethiopic in LaTeX).
Thanks again for the direction.
