First, two points:
- Because you're using Cygwin, it would be best to use sftp from the openssh package.
- If at all possible, don't put passwords in scripts.  It's better to configure non-interactive ssh authentication, for example by adding the client system's public ID to the authorized_keys file on the server.  A pretty good intro is at http://kimmo.suominen.com/docs/ssh/
Assuing you're using sftp and non-interactive authentication:
#!/bin/bash
sftp user@host:[path] -b [text file]
