Question Grounding wire

I want to put up a chandelier (newly rewired) but when I took the fan/light down - discovered there is a grounding wire - which the chandelier does not have. What do I do? Can I (electrical) tape it off? Or what??

Thank you for any guidance.

Surprised thta theres no groundwire,since most new lampcords have them. With the power off,just gently push the ground wire into the back of the box. Proceed to connect the black wire {from the switch} to the wire from the chandelier {the one without any print on the wire}.Then connect the other chandelier wire to the white wire in the box
