Difference between Get[] and Copy-Past operation

I have a text file with Mathematica commands that I generate using a Java
program (I don't want to use JLINK). When I do a copy-paste operation of the
file contents into Mathematica, everything works fine. When I do
Get["myfile.txt"], I get lots of spelling and syntax errors. It seems that
Get does not parse the file right. Are there any configuration parameters I
should set in Mathematica for this to work ? I could not find any.

Thank you in advance for any help,
