Have you looked at DreamBeam (http://dreambeam.de/)? This is an open source
worship presentation software, which says it has integration with SWORD.
This is mainly meant for songs (I think), but should be able to do verses.
It also has dual monitor support. As far as I know it is windows only
(requires directx, c#, flash player, etc)

God Bless,
