The Divine Mercy chaplet is prayed on an ordinary 5 decade rosary.

Begin with the Sign of the Cross. Then say: 

You Died JESUS, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.  (3 O'Clock Prayer)

O Fount of life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelope the whole world and empty yourself out upon us.

O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of JESUS, as a fountain of Mercy for us, we trust in You (3 times)

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.

Hail Mary,
full of grace, 
the Lord is with thee
Blessed are thou amongst women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen. 

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;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will 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

Then on the Our Father bead say the following:

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 Hail Mary Beads say the following:

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

Repeat this for all five decades.
Conclude with (three times):

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
(Make a silent intention)

St. Maria Faustina, pray for us (3 times)

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

O Greatly Merciful God, infinite goodness, today all mankind call out from the abyss of its misery to Your mercy, to Your compassion O God and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out. Gracious God, do not reject the prayer of this earth's exiles! O Lord, goodness beyond our understanding who are acquainted with our misery, through and through and know that by our own power we cannot ascend to You. We implore You, anticipate us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your Holy Will all through our lives and at death's hour. Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us from the darts of our salvation's enemies, that we may with confidence as Your children await Your final coming, that day known to You alone. And we expect to obtain everything promised us by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness. 
For Jesus is our hope, through His Merciful heart as through an open gate we pass through to heaven. Amen
