Installing a new outlet

I am attempting to install an overhead lamp that came with a grounded cord meant for plugging into a wall outlet. Unfortunately, in the place I want to put the lamp, there is no outlet. The old lamp that is being replaced had no two-prong cord; instead, it was attached directly to wires hidden up inside the ceiling. I am wondering how difficult it would be to add a new outlet in this spot. Any help would be appreciated.

By "old lamp" are you referring to a ceiling liting-fixture that was fastened to an outlet-box concealed underneath the ceiling finish?
