GIMP can use most system-installed fonts, and does not have its own

Use Layer/Text to Path.

Then make a new layer in Layers and drag it to the top of the list of

Then bring up Windows/Dockable Dialogues/Paths.

At bottom right of that is a button to stroke (paint along) the path.
That will get you the text outline, painted onto your new layer.

Then change the opacity of the text layer (in Layers) so you can see
through it.
