You don't give sufficient information.

What size  is your image? What dpi is it?

Again, just guessing, 

  Open the image
  Image->Resize and make the dpi say 300
  Select the text tool, click on the image and say set the font size to 150
  Type away

Then look at the image, is it still pixelated?

Or post an xcf with the problem somewhere so others can look at it
