The purpose of this study is to analyze and explain the theme and content of the Southern Leyte Hymn. This study employed the qualitative method through the use of content analysis. Participants from Southern Leyte answered the study from different categories. Senior High School students, instructors, employees of the municipality or LGU, Sangguniang Bayan, barangay authorities, unemployed people, and all Provincial Sangguniangs are all selected. In each town, the researcher collected five individuals from each category. There are 465 people in this study as a whole. The Southern Leyte Hymn theme found that Southern Leyte is a prosperous province about which Southern Leyteans might be proud in other provinces. The main themes in terms of substance are nationalism, godliness, hope/trust, and love/care/humanity. The culture and traditions mentioned in the hymn emphasize love, compassion, and respect. The hymn describes three different types of lifestyles: farming, fishing, and business. The analysis of literary works is an effective, efficient, objective way to determine the real, appropriate theme and content of certain information to the readers in the scenario in the past is through the analysis of literary works. It is proposed to use the music video that this study produced as a teaching tool.
