You can use that. Although, as "sásta" can also mean "satisfied," I might go with "beidh áthas ort": You will be glad/joyful.

Wait for more.

Could you give us some idea of the context in which you want to say this. Are you wishing that someone will be/is happy?

Exactly, like a parent leaving a message to their child that they will be happy in life.

I would use "beidh tú sona sásta" for that

Well in that case, might I suggest that it could begin with - Go raibh ..... ?

Yes, if it's a wish/blessing for the future, rather than a prediction that "you will be ..", then:
Go raibh tú sona sásta!
May you be [very] happy!

Irish is quite fond of nouns, so perhaps more idiomatic:

(Go raibh) sonas ort. But this is a bit short and an often used set (and empty) phrase,

so: Sonas agus séan ort. (May you be happy and prosperous.)


(in case of more than one child: ... oraibh)
