The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy
(On ordinary rosary beads) (Diary, 476) 

The Our Father 

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy  kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give  us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we  forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The Hail Mary

 Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with you. Blessed are you  among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the  hour of our death. Amen. 

The Apostles' Creed

 I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He arose again from thedead; He ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

On the Large Bead before Each Decade:

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement  for our sins and those of the whole world.

On the 10 Small Beads of Each Decade:

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Concluding Doxology: (after five decades)

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us  and on the whole world. (Three times)
