Sending passphrase w/o keyboard interaction

I have an account where I have DSA key setup with a passphrase.  I am trying
to write a script to ssh over to another Unix server, without having to type
in the passphrase and have ssh read the passphrase from either a file or
pass it in from the command line.  Is there a way to do something like this?
I know that we can it so I don't need to enter a passphrase but we don't
want to do that.
Any help would be appreciated.
