Something like below should work - (similar code to your other question.)
Const ForReading = 1

CurrentLineNum=0
Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set oTextFile = oFSO.OpenTextFile ("TextFileforReading.txt", ForReading)

Do Until oTextFile.AtEndOfStream
CurrentLineNum=CurrentLineNum+1
    sLine = oTextFile.ReadLine
    If instr(sline,"LookForMe")
             WScript.Echo CurrentLineNum,sLine
           Next
    End If
Loop
