how to scale text to a bounding rectangle?

How can I automatically scale Text[] to fit into a bounding rectangle of 
a size that I specify?

For instance, I can get a pretty close result here, but it is not 
perfect (the text doesn't touch the bottom edge of the rectangle), and 
"36", {0,0}, and {-1,-1} are all numbers I had to find through trial and 
error:

Graphics[{
   FaceForm[], EdgeForm[Black],
   Rectangle[{0, 0}, {100, 10}],
   Text[Style["Hello", 36], {0, 0}, {-1, -1}]
   }
  ]


Thanks,

Michael
