This logic should not be in find and is already in file,
try something along the lines of:

find -print0 |
xargs -r0 file |
grep "text$" |  #file always outputs text as last word for text files
cut -f1 -d:

Might be appropriate to put this in a script called findtext ?
so then you could do:

findtext |
tr '\n' '\0' | #needed to support files with spaces in name
xargs -0 grep "search string"
