The file is going to get interpreted as JavaScript code, not text, so the file has to consist of valid javascript statements. The best you can do is probably put something like this in the text file:

txt1 = "first line of text";
txt2 = "second line of text";
txt3 = "third line of text";
etc.

Then in your expression you would have some code that would randomly display txt1, txt2, or txt3, etc.
