Yes.  Sorry I see how the two got muddled. :)  PHP is poorly licensed, but
has no effect on what license your project is.  SWORD is licensed well,
but could have an effect. :)

That appears to be correct because the LGPL is GPL compatible:

<fsf def>
The GNU Lesser General Public License, or GNU LGPL for short. 
       This is a free software license, but not a strong copyleft license,
because it permits linking with non-free modules. It is compatible with
the GNU GPL. We recommend it for special circumstances only. 
</fsf def>

I would emplore you to please consider using the GPL instead of the LGPL
for you product. :)
