Converting date/time to hours/minutes/seconds in DAX

I have a column of information that I need converted to number of seconds but the one issue I have is the source system providing the data, provides it in a particular format


1899-12-31 12:04:42AM should be converted to 4minutes and 42 seconds

1899-12-31 01:12:01AM should be converted to 1 hour, 12 minutes and 01 seconds.


Any ideas how I could write formulas to be able to chart this in graphs/tables.
