Did you verify that the condition is actually met in all cases
you expect it to be?

    for line in lines:

is easier and more readable.

What input did you provide to this function? I'm getting 0 lines
when I call it like this:

    render_text("foo bar\nfoo bar")

May I suggest you post the complete executable code next time?
Including the import, print statement and actual call to the
function. That will help people to reproduce it easily and you
will probably get a solution in hours instead of days :-)
