Lupang Hinirang – Philippine National Anthem

Lupang Hinirang 1958 Philippine National Anthem Bayang magiliw, perlas ng silanganan, Alab ng puso, sa dibdib mo’y buhay. Lupang hinirang, duyan ka ng magiting, Sa manlulupig, dika pasisiil. Sa dagat at bundok, sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw, May dilag ang tula, at awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang Hacienda Luisita sa Tarlac Province ay may lawak na 6,453-hectares.
