Bamboo Build script hanging on Commit Message

We are pulling new files from a shared location and adding to a Bitbucket repository with no user input on a daily schedule.  The files are log messages raised and GIT is the best solution for this right now.

The package checks out the repository to the Bamboo working directory then the script running on Linux with bash script copies any new files and then attempts to run a:

- git add {filename}
followed by
- git commit -m $'commit message\n'

The commit message is displayed in the Bamboo status window, it says in part the common message text :
# Please enter the commit message for your changes. Lines starting
11-Dec-2018 11:26:00 # with '#' will be ignored, and an empty message aborts the commit.
11-Dec-2018 11:26:00 # On branch master
11-Dec-2018 11:26:00 # Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
11-Dec-2018 11:26:00 #

How can I get the message to be consumed in the script? I have tried many different message strings.

I got a little further, working now:

Create a file with message content (sample here but easily extended)

touch "${}/messages.txt"
echo "Adding new file @ $(date)" >> "${}/messages.txt"

run commit and pipe in the file

 git commit --file="${}/messages.txt"
