Not simple, but here's one way to do it.

1) Create a comp for your text, animate it however you like, and use the Essential Graphics Panel to make its text a master property. (For more, see https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/creating-motion-graphics-templa...

2) Space out multiple layers of that text precomp in your main comp, and change the text however you need.

3) Write some expressions linking the Time Remapping property to its position in the comp. This way, the text comes into focus as it moves into place, and you only have to worry about animating the position property.

Here's a sample:

This is pretty elegant, flexible, and fast to change -- but it's not simple to understand or to build in the first place and I imagine you'll have questions. Please feel free to ask away and I'll do my best to explain.
