Need help (Hanging lamp on ceiling)

I have a standard plug-in lamp and would like to wire and hang it from the j-box(?) in the ceiling. What wiring considerations are different with a lamp cord also there is no ground wire on the lamp cord so what do I do with the ground wire coming out of the J-box?

Changing a plug-in lamp to a wired-in lamp would void the UL listing and could be hazardous.

It may also be hazardous to hang a lamp that was not originally designed for hanging.

Do not do this. Bad idea.
