Hymn has important meaning

Hands up all those who remember singing 'Praise my soul the king of heaven' in school assembly. We seem to sing it often and it became implanted on my memory.

The words of this hymn were written in the 1800s by HF Hyte and was based on Psalm 103 which is about 'God's great love for us'. Thinking about the third line of this hymn: 'ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven...' what does it really mean?
