Taken from the Father Lasance  "Prayer Book for Religious" 1904. Pg 575 

This chaplet for the dead consists of four decades (40 beads) in honour 
and memory of the forty hours that Our Lord Jesus Christ 
passed in Limbo to deliver and conduct to heaven all the 
souls of the saints who died before Him. 

Begin with the DE PROFUNDIS 

On the large beads pray: 

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual 
light shine upon them.  May they rest in peace. Amen 
O my God I believe
in Thee, because Thou art truth itself. 
I hope in Thee, because Thou art infinitely merciful. 
I love Thee with my whole heart and above all things because 
Thou art infinitely perfect, and I love my neighbour as myself 
for the love of Thee.

 I am truly sorry for having sinned,  because Thou art infinitely good
 and sin displeases Thee. 
I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace never more to 
offend Thee.  Amen.

On the small beads pray: 

Sweet heart of Mary be my salvation. 

Conclude with the DE PROFUNDIS 

Indulgence of 60 YEARS each time, applicable to the souls in Purgatory
