wiring a chandelier, please help

I removed a ceiling fan and trying to install a chandelier. From the ceiling there is a black wire, white wire, and red wire, as well as a bare copper wire. My chandelier consists of one wire, looks like a regular lamp cord that can be split into two, and a bare silver wire running besides the cord. Do I assume that the cord coming from the chandelier is one power cord or do I need to split them. And if I do split them how would I wire them to the ceiling wires. Please help.

There is one extra wire at the fan because you can switch the fan and light separate. Cap the red wire with a wire nut and connect the white wire to the side of the new wire that has the rib. Connect the black wire to the other half of the wire. Connect the 2 bare wires.

If, after following Joe's instructions, you find that you cannot turn the light off, then connect to the red wire and cap the black wire.
