Gaelic translation, please (need answer fast-ish)

I'm doing a newsletter and noting the death of an Irish priest. This Gaelic sentence was included in his obituary on the website of the funeral home.

Ar deis Dê go raib a anam dílis.

Can someone translate this for me? I want to quote it, but I want to make sure I understand exactly what it says. (Also, my client is likely to ask me.)

Google translate says:
"On the possibility of a faithful soul rape"

That doesn't sound quite right...

ETA: Okay, I found this: "May his/her soul be on God's right hand - Ar dheas Dé go raibh a anam." Also, what about the his/her?
