See the StringFormat class (the defaults should do, but you can create your own) and the Graphics.DrawString method, which you can use in the OnPaint method override (always override methods instead of handling events in derived classes, but make sure to call the base class's method in most cases):
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
  RectangleF rectF = GetRectFBoundsForControl(); // Made-up method to
    // get the bounds in which text can be drawn.
  e.Graphics.DrawString("Some multi-line text",
    this.Font,
    new SolidBrush(SystemColors.ControlText),
    rectF,
    StringFormat.GenericDefault); // Or create your own
}
Otherwise, you can always just P/Invoke DrawText, define the DT_CALCRECT and DT_WORDBREAK constants (or enum values) based on the preproc def values, and call the method using the control's HDC, which you can get during the Paint event (override OnPaint when deriving from Control instead):
protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
  base.OnPaint(e);
  IntPtr hdc = e.Graphics.GetHdc();
  DrawText(hdc, "Some Text", ...);
  e.Graphics.ReleaseHdc(hdc);
}
You'll also need to define the RECT structure to use in managed code. See the StructLayoutAttribute for details.
