Asking all fluent Irish speaking people.

I am looking for the following translation:

"I trust, and so it is"

There are several ways to say it:
Creidim, agus is amhlaidh atá [sé]
Credim, agus mar sin atá [sé]


The word ("it") isn't crucial in the Irish version, but some may think that the expression sounds better with it.

I'm not sure how comfortable I am with "creid" as "trust." I'd read that more as "believe." "Tá muinín agam" maybe?

How about combining both comments above?

Tá muinín agam, agus mar sin atá sé.
Tá muinín agam, agus is amhlaidh atá sé.

Yes, that works better.
