As seen in image (see below, 1.png)  "Hello World" is displayed in one line.
I want to display "Hello" first and on next line "World"

dynamicTexture3	= new THREEx.DynamicTexture(512,512);
                    dynamicTexture3.context.font	= (0.2*512)+"px Arial";
                    dynamicTexture3.drawText("Hello World", undefined, 256, 'black');

You'll need to execute two writes - one for "Hello" and one for "World" - using different y locations.

@Steve Bink : It is a texture on which I am writing "Hello World". I have attached that texture on Cube geometry.
First step what I do is create a texture with "Hello world" and then I attach it to Cube geometry in three js.
So keeping these things in mind could you guide me ?

I'm not at all familiar with threex, so I'm afraid I won't be of much help.  My earlier suggestion was made after a brief examination of the source, and some assumptions about the primary library.  Working from there, I would think you do something like this:
dynamicTexture3.drawText("Hello", undefined, 250, 'black')
               .drawText("World", undefined, 262, 'black');

I think you brought me more close to answer.
According to your code "Hello" is overlapped by "World".

Then adjust the "y" values until they don't overlap.
