The patriot is going through a tough time in his life. He is being taken to be executed in front of the masses. He feels that he is being punished wrongly as people have misunderstood him and his deeds. But he is neither afraid nor regretful, for he knows that God is there to reward him according to his true merit after his death. This only asserts the patriot’s strong faith in God.
