Text position within "rectangle text" field

Hello all

I have a text-field in a layout, that I have to populate with data from a database. As this data consists of one up to four lines of text, I'm using a rectangle-text-field. The text-position within the field should always be in the lower left corner, that is, if there's only one line of text, the empty space in the text-field should be above the line of text.
I can set the anchor point of the textfield, but I don't see any way of setting the textposition within the textfield.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
