Lightroom should pick up on the keywords you entered via Bridge if you have it set to write the keywords out to the file (or XMP in the case of RAW).
If you have keywords that aren't already assigned to pictures, and you want to import your full list into LR, you can Export your keyword list from Bridge (via the flyout menu in the Keywords panel) and Import your list into Lightroom (via the Metadata menu). Or just apply them all to one picture and import that is a pretty quick way too.
Thanks Akash. However, I don't see where I can set Bridge to write the keywords out to the file. Is that something that happens as I assign them or is it something I do before I export?

Bridge always records keywords with the images. It's automatic - you won't need to do anything when you import the photos into LR.
