To do what you want you have to add the text (on the very same spot) to all the layers/frames of the animation. There are scripts and plugins to do this, For instance my own interleave-layers script used in "title" mode:


My thanks to everyone who sent possible answers to my question.  I tried to
implement them as I was reading the Gimp User Manual.  I am not a skilled
user.  I am learning as I go.  I had no idea that Python is a way of
writing scripts for Gimp.  I do not know where to find my Gimp profile.  I
am not kidding.  The user manual does not mention it.
