Thank you. I was wondering if I'd put it wrong but I've never seen it on paper only in speech.

It can be used to describe an action however so you're not too far off. By fording the river you may forge ahead. Funnily enough now that i look the NYT website has:

You can “ford” a raging river. Or you can “forge on” or “forge ahead.” But you can't “forge” a river.

Climb ev'ry mountain

Ford ev'ry stream
