Slow down output from dhclient-script to screen

I know the basic about script and sleep processes.
However this is more tricky:
I would like to run

sh -x /sbin/dhclient-script and slow down the output of the script as a whole.
How would you do it?
I would like to delay output on the screen with 1 second for every line for the output from the running script. That would be helpful for debugging
Thanks in advance Smilie

Unfortunately it doesn't work on this script
Maybe it's too big a script.
I guess I have to find another way of debugging it
