OpenGL has no textrendering. You can use 3rd party libraries for that. A static text could get displayed as a texture.

Please don't just post open ended questions or pleas like " help me".
Have you read the posting guide?
Ask specific questions.
Now you could just draw your text in a bitmap image using MS Paint or other art package. Then just display the bitmap on the front screen. Great if you don't need dynamic printing.

Setup an orthographic projection.
and disable depth testing.
and render some quads on your screen.
But if you are confused an need to learn things, try the old NeHe tutorials
